Blight, blight, blight. The lot in back of the liquor store is never kept clean. The owners just walk through the litter week after week, but never pick it up. Construction debris has been piled up for more than a year, weeds are never removed, and discarded food scraps (a whole loaf of bread????) are scattered around on the ground. This is an ongoing problem for years. Why is the city powerless to make people keep their property clean?

I almost had an accident AGAIN pulling slowly onto Winchester, because all visibility was blocked by this white Nissan Rogue that is parked in the bus stop almost every single friggin day without getting a ticket. This is one of the many reasons I voted for someone new.

The Zone 7 signs and the no parking here to corner signs have not been replaced after sidewalk replacement. Now people are parking next to the corner, and it is going to cause an accident, because you can't see to the left on Winchester when you turn.
Due to the recent heavy rains we've had, the soil supporting the underside of the new Scantlebury skate park is rapidly eroding / washing away. The damage is clearly visible from Webster Street. If we don't stop the erosion and replace the supporting soil, the concrete surface WILL CRACK in two. Grass or other ground cover should have been planted on this exposed soil, but it hasn't been done yet. Right now the supporting soil foundation is just washing away and it's only a matter of time until permanent, irreparable damage is done. Can we please replace the lost supporting soil and do something to stop the soil from washing away? This was a big investment and it would be a shame to see the skate park damaged so soon after it opened (not fun riding a skateboard across crumbling concrete.) Thank you Parks Dept!!
I live next to residents of the Yale Crew. They have loud parties during the week and the weekend. The parties start low about 9 p.m. By midnight, I wake to loud synthesized music and yelling. Yale Police tell me it's a New Haven matter. New Haven Police have told me the students can get tickets. I try to work with the students by not complaining if the music is low. When the music is loud by midnight, it takes about an hour before the police arrive. By that time, the students have ended the party and there is no one for the police to speak to. How can they then get a ticket? The City adopted a noise ordinance that would control noise at a level not to exceed 55 decibels – roughly the sound of a clothes dryer or microwave between the hours of 7am and 10pm Monday through Saturday (or 9am through 9pm on Sundays) and a maximum 45 decibels from 10pm until 7am throughout the week. What do I have to do to make sure the Yale Crew adheres to this ordinance?

This represents a portion of the garbage still present in the front yard of this property three weeks after a windstorm knocked over their garbage cans on pick up day. A note was left for the tenants several days ago, but nothing has been done. It is an eyesore. We live and have a rental home in the immediate area and would like this picked up.
