  • 270 Edgewood Ave New Haven, CT - Dwight

    I posted this issue back in December 2012, but it was archived, despite that nothing seems to have been done. It has been reported to LCI both directly and through seeclickfix.

    I'm not sure the status of this house (it was for sale, not sure who owns it now), but parts of the roof have fallen off into the neighbors yard, and there is a lot of trash dumped in the back yard.

    The 3rd floor residents moved out because of plumbing problems that they said leaked down into the unoccupied second floor, and the occupied first floor.

    On seeclickfix, LCI said that they were at the property in December and assigned a case number for inspection, but no progress seems to have been made. The property continues to literally fall apart.

  • Traffic/Road Safety Acknowledged
    432 Edgewood Ave New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Edgewood

    This intersection has seen *three* crashes in just over a week: 7/28, 8/5, & just now 8/8. These are just the ones I've been home to witness the aftermath. At least one was very severe involving a motorcycle & car, & I don't know if the motorcyclist survived. In my eight years of living here, crashes at this intersection are commonplace. No hyperbole-- crashes here happen with scary frequency.

    It is clear, but I'd like the data to back up my assertion (who keeps crasj statistics?), that this traffic signal -- a blinking yellow on Edgewood and a blinking red on Edgewood-- is completely ineffective.

    The city can no longer wait. We need immediate attention & intervention at this intersection. How many more crashes & potential fatalities are necessary before action?

    Attention Department of Children and Families (DCF).

    Report of child abuse: the parents of children at this address are teaching their children to ride ATVs and dirt bikes on the street, sidewalks and in the edgewood mall and park.

    It is only a matter of time before they seriously hurt themselves or someone else.

  • 665 Whalley Ave New Haven, CT 06511 - Edgewood
    Tried crossing Whalley Ave. on marked crosswalk (stood in crosswalk, kept slowly inching my way into the road) at West Park Ave. and was passed by a horde of motorists. No one even thought about stopping. Also got trapped in the middle of the road when cars did not stop on the westbound side. I think a new traffic light is warranted here with a countdown-style walk light for the crosswalk. This would help slow traffic on this dangerous stretch of Whalley and allow people to cross safely. Also recommended is a bicycle-actuated signal, so cyclists can turn on to Whalley safely.

    Getting poked if the face by lady trying to stay dry with embra because cars were blocking walk is not fun !
    Some one needs to address these simple issues!
  • 89 99 Ellsworth Ave New Haven, CT - Edgewood
    Pike International bought the building at the northeast corner of Chapel Street and Ellsworth Avenue last year, and, while they put a lot of work into it, they really need to take one more step and redo this sidewalk. It's badly broken and a hazard to walk over. Pike's a big company, and it certainly can afford to repair about 100 ft of sidewalk for the safety of its tenants and other residents of the neighborhood.
  • 355 Norton Street New Haven, CT - Beaver Hills
    Sign states NO PARKING in front of his house "unless you are the one who shoveled." City streets are open to all as far as parking is concerned. Sign needs to be removed.
  • Parks Request Archived
    11 Brownell St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Edgewood
    Dangerous slide - there is a hole in one of the slides and covering the hole is a piece of plywood bolted to the slide. The slide is not roped off, however, so if a child (or adult) did not notice the plywood, the child would slide right into the plywood. This is a serious safety hazard.
  • Whalley And Ella Grass Blvd New Haven, CT - Edgewood
    Well, it used to be a can of spray paint, but now they're moving on up! Street gang calling themselves Blvd Boyz, having raked in enough money from drug and hooker sales, have designed and purchased their very own posters, and now they are plastering them all over. The telephone pole at this intersection is covered halfway up (must have been a short gang member) with their territorial pissings. I mean...postings.
  • Whalley Ave And Ella Grasso Blvd New Haven, Connecticut - Edgewood

    ANOTHER car accident at the intersection of Whalley Ave and Ella Grasso BLVD. I have lived here for over 10 years and there is an average of 1 car accident a week and I see at least 1 -2 near misses a day.

    The complaints on SEECLICKFIX, as well as multiple complaints to the city are NUMEROUS and go back YEARS.

    How much longer until someone gets killed here, and the city gets sued for millions of taxpayer dollars?

    If this gets closed before the intersection is fixed and turn signals are installed I'm just going to keep re-opening it.
