140-180 Concord Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Shore
Several young belligerents, one of which is masked, ride along Concord on their street illegal dirt bikes at high speeds. They do this several times a day, often times at night, and have shouted threats and obscenities at various people. Today, they rode on someone's property and revved their engines, gauging the grass.
The cops have been called several times without response and this is disgusting. What is needed to get a police response in this city? Is a felony the only thing that warrants attention?

430 Lighthouse Road New Haven, Connecticut - East ShoreThere have been 2 car crashes in 3 weeks at the intersection of Lighthouse & Marion. All season, people race around this bend with screeching tires. Whether it's narrowing the road, installing an elevated pedestrian crosswalk, a traffic circle, or changing the road surface -- SOMETHING needs to be done. Note: No one was hurt in the accident shown in the photo.

177 Lexington Ave New Haven, CT 06513, USA - Fair Haven HeightsThe residents of 177 Lexington Ave. have a pit bull out on a short chain. This dog barks, howls, and cries for hours at a time. Sometimes the dog has no water bowl, or the water bowl is empty. During the colder months the dog is often kept in the shed behind their house. My neighbor went over to bring it water once, and she said the shed was filled with feces. This has been going on for years and Animal Control has been called several times, yet the dog remains in their "care" and continues to be neglected.

"The smell will drive you crazy..."
Uretek, a polyurethane manufacturing factory that is surrounded by residential homes and schools, consistently produces noxious chemical smells - especially at night. Driving or walking by, the foul odor can be overwhelming, and even blocks away, the fumes invade. The potential "danger" of these emissions is a serious concern, compounded by the billowing black smoke recently seen billowing from the factory, as well as the company's disturbing history of air pollution.
“’The smell would drive you crazy,’ said Louis Lopez, a 44-year-old mechanic who has worked for Uretek since 1984.” In December 1986, The New York Times covered a controversial employee strike at Uretek Inc. Uretek workers walked off the job due to health and safety concerns, specifically regarding the solvent dimethylformamide, or DMF, which is used at the plant. They claimed that fumes sickened half of the 66 workers at the plant. Later, testing by Yale confirmed the damage: 36 of the tested employees had ''significant liver-function abnormalities,'' and ten were diagnosed with toxic hepatitis, findings that, according to the doctor, were ''overwhelmingly'' linked to DMF*
The workers’ health problems in 1986 were “not the first time that Uretek has been accused of wrongdoing,” according to the Times article. In 1984, the Uretek vice president John Andrews was convicted on felony charges of illegally storing and disposing of hazardous waste – making it “the first time a corporation in Connecticut had been convicted of such a criminal offense in a trial.”
The article also noted that Uretek has been cited by the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection on air pollution.
Although this was many years ago, Uretek's emissions and its potential impact on the environment and people remain a very significant concern.
The DEP was notified a few years back (when the odors seemed particularly strong and noxious even blocks away). Despite Uretek’s pollution history, DEP’s response seemed disinterested. As far as we know, no air quality testing was conducted, nor any follow-up.
A health issue as serious and dangerous as this requires more than discussions or assurances from factory management. It would seem logical and imperative that thorough air quality testing be conducted (especially after hours/at night when the odors are often strongest) and that the results be made publicly available.
Does DEP receive notification of SeeClickFix concerns?
410 Woodward Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - AnnexThe trees in East Shore Park are in DESPERATE need of being cleaned of invasive and native species of vine which are growing well into the canopy of many of the trees. I would easily say that 95% of the trees inside the park along the areas of unmown lawn especially are affected. As well, two trees have been girdled by vandalism, with many more being girdled by invasives such as bittersweet. I understand the financial crisis of the city and the Park Departments decision to let the lawn go wild for the last two seasons prior to this one, but in doing this, invasives have come in and are scaffolding up most of the trees. This situation is approaching dire.

Sidewalks Throughout Morris Cove Are Unsafe & Need Repair
The sidewalks on Townsend Ave, Lighthouse Rd, and ALL side streets throughout Morris Cove are in grave need of repair. They are full of holes, heaves, cracks, and in some areas have been taken over by grass, trees, and shrubbery. They are not safe for children, elderly, and are impossible to navigate with a wheelchair or stroller. This is a neighborhood meant for walking and sightseeing.
