This area is unserviced by the city of New Haven. Many landlords are slum lords. LCI ignores most sidewalk and curb issues. DPW only attends to issues at their convenience.

  • 28-30 Vernon St New Haven, CT 06519, USA - New Haven - Ward 03
    Property is being used as a transfer station. Located in the middle of a residential area.
  • Howard And Congress Ave New Haven, CT 06519, USA - New Haven - Ward 03
    A street drain that's been clogged for years causes a massive puddle every time it rains. Many pedestrians including patients pass by and they get soaked when cars pass by. Simple to fix!

  • 209 Davenport Ave New Haven, Connecticut - New Haven - Ward 03
    I am not sure if this is private property, but a vehicle has shown up that is stripped and picked over. This kind of thing contributes to the breakdown of our neighborhood.
  • Career High And Sylvan Ave NEW HAVEN, Connecticut - New Haven - Ward 03
    The area between Career High and Sylvan Ave. is DISGUSTING!! The amount of garbage, trash bins, dumped wood and milk crates is getting out of control!! I have sent email to our neighborhood LCI person - no luck! I have called DPW - no luck!! How is it that Yale and other high schools in the city are beautiful and clean and this one in the Hill is the city dump???!!!
  • 418 Congress Ave New Haven, CT - New Haven - Ward 03

    Coming from the East approaching Howard Ave on Congress Ave, 2 one way lanes merge into 2. There is no pavement marking nor signage to illustrate which of the two lanes should be permitted to drive straight and often this results in two cars battling it out in the intersection for which should go first.

    Is it possible for the right lane to be a right turn only, or to add a merge/yield sign here?

  • 98 Stevens Street New Haven, Connecticut - New Haven - Ward 03
    Stop sign at corner of Stevens Street and Sylvan Ave is graffitied beyond comprehension. The sign opposite is damaged as well.

    Sylvan Ave New Haven, Connecticut - New Haven - Ward 03
    Is there a way to report one of the "neighbors" who responds constantly to issues other residents have filed?
    The individual who is identified as XYZ is very disruptive and insulting in the comments that he or she leaves!!
    Enough already!! This individual has irritated and annoyed so many people on here - is this appropriate???
  • 175 Davenport Ave New Haven, CT - New Haven - Ward 03
    This house has folks parking in the sidewalk almost constantly. If the inhabitants could be informed this is not permitted, that would be much appreciated.
  • Congress Ave And Howard New Haven, CT - New Haven - Ward 03
    Thus intersection needs more clarity. On the north side of Congress you have two southbound lanes that transition into one. (The issue is further complicated when cars are not immediately parked along the curb because it could appear as though there are still two lanes)
    I request the right lane be indicated as a turn only, but if this requires traffic/civic engineers to get involved then can we at least have a sign indicating there is a merge ahead and which lane should yield?
  • Vacant Lot Between Asylum And Elliot Sts. New Haven, Connecticut - New Haven - Ward 03
    There is no sidewalk adjacent to this property...DPW says it is the residents responsibility to permanently repair it..There arent any residents and if it is a question of ownership, New Haven is the owner!!!
