Notified About

  • 55 Lock Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    We came across a groundhog that was frantically wandering in the street near Yale Health. Apparently someone had stopped and taken its baby into a car, so it was confused and panicked. It is unlikely anything can be done, but we thought it worth posting to SCF that people should not take wild animals!
  • 81 Winchester New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    About 10 years ago we tried to get LCI to deal with the abandoned ruin next to 79 Winchester. They said it was not in danger of collapse, so they couldn't do anything.
    The roof has now been collapsed for several years, so why can't the city require the owners to either repair it, or take it over itself and demolish it? We have never understood why it takes New Haven decades to follow up on this kind of blight, and would love an answer to help us understand.
  • Potholes Archived
    30-36 Winchester Ave New Haven Ct 06511 United States - Dixwell
    This stretch of road is covered in potholes. Please repair. Cold patch does not stick - it needs to be dug up and patched.
  • Farmington Canal Heritage Trl New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Dixwell
    A pickup truck full of what appeared to be broken furniture somehow managed to smash through the wooden fence between the Farmington Canal Trail and Canal St (closest to 136 Canal St) yesterday. I'm told it tried to drive away down the trail, was stopped by the barriers, backed up through the hole it had made, and drove off.
  • 146 Mansfield Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    126 Mansfield Street condo residents mowed the grass, and raked all the clippings, together with the litter on the grass strip, into the street. It seems they really don't know how to handle trash, snow removal, recycling, and the public space. They have put out yard waste in recycling, left snow on the sidewalk for weeks, let the grass go without cutting for several months, not trimmed hedges, never picked up the litter, and packed leaves in plastic bags and put it out with garbage. Could the city give them some information about how to handle this stuff? Maybe a ticket would be a good start.
  • 106 Mansfield St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Dixwell
    I'd like to apply for an "Obstruction Permit" to park a moving POD on Mansfield St, Zone 7. The size of the pod is only 7ftx7ftx8ft but will need a 40'x12'x15' (LxWxH) clearance. To whom do I send the permit application, given that the office of Transportation, Traffic, & Parking is closed indefinitely? I have filled out the form (https://www.newhavenct.gov/civicax/filebank/blobdload.aspx?blobid=32689) but don't know who to send it to. Thank you.
  • 133 Goffe Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    The stoplight at the right turn onto Goffe. The left signal light's red bulb has burned out...the right one is still on.
  • 153 Winchester Ave New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Dixwell
    the signs they removed and put back are falling over.
  • 2-16 Winchester Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    I have called both NH Transportation and NHPD to report that the stop sign that was at the corner of Winchester and Sachem has been removed. This needs to be corrected asap as it is a heavily used pedestrian crosswalk!
  • Graffiti Archived
    101 Ashmun Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell

    Negative racial graffiti located on the Canal Line behind 344 Winchester. I'm requesting that it be cleaned/covered up. The graffiti says:

    "No Whites Allowed!" Blue spray paint
    "We Rob the Yalies." Blue spray paint
    "Get out whites." Black spray paint

    Thank you for your attention in this matter.

    45 Woodland St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Dixwell
    Disgusting garbage being eaten by animals. Chicken bones, personal hygiene products, are all dumped 2 feet away from my house by the Chinese AirBnB guests to the 3rd floor apartment at 45 Woodland Street. Someone needs to clean this up immediately. I am sick of the problems created by different irresponsible guests in and out of this building in the past 2 years. Is running a hotel really legal in this residential building? I also want this garbage area completely removed from between our two buildings, and put in the other property's huge parking lot. Where else is it OK to have one house's garbage up against the neighbor's house? Why do I have to live like this? Does Toni Harp have the same problem where she lives? Who do I talk to about this?
