    I could be wrong, but I thought visitor parking passes were to be used for residents having guests visiting at their home.

    Yale students (last school year) and Yale employees (currently) who work at Yale Health on Lock Street have acquired visitor passes and use them on a daily on Lake Place. I have visibly seen students walk to and from campus to their cars without visiting a home on Lake Place and park overnight daily. I have visibly watched employees in uniform with Yale IDs park in front of my house Monday-Friday and walk into Yale Health. They park from 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. on Lake Place. My house and the two houses at Ashmun Street are the only houses without driveways. The two Yale houses to my right park their cars (when they own them) park at Yale owed property down the street. These people who have visitor passes cluster to Ashmun Street forcing myself and my tenants to park away from our home. Of course, the Yale employees are not here during the weekend giving us some relief.
    When the service station closed across from my home was closed, parking customers for that property were displaced. An elderly Yale professors’ widow who lived on York Square/Tower PKWY was one of those displaced customers. While she was arranging alternative parking, I allowed her to use my visitors parking. My visitors pass was fined $50 for misuse of visitors pass.
    Displacement of the residents of 11 Lake place is unfair due to the misuse of visitors pass.
    How can this situation be resolved?

  • 31 Woodland St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Dixwell
    Complete abdication of parking enforcement on Woodland, Mansfield, Compton, Tilton. Residents who use visitor tags, Yale workers who commute and park here, and people that routinely park here with no pretense of having a tag at all, day after day, month after month, year after year. And the city does nothing.
  • 1-3 Webster Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    Across form the parking lot entrance from this ignorant condo association they have been plowing all the snow from the 20 car lot into the street and blocking the sidewalk and occluding the street. I have reported on this site and called public works annually for years and no one does anything. The behavior continues.
    The Public Space Inspector will not return phone calls and has never acknowledged this issue. I can only assume SOMEONE KNOWS SOMEONE and that is how they get away with it year after year.
    One year the road was down to one lane for months. You have to be deaf dumb and blind to not see this. There is still a piles of snow 2' into the street from the last storm. Calls to local Alders also go unanswered.
    Who's the VIP who lives there ???
  • 157 Winchester Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    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?

    This Could Be Scantlebury Skateparklet.

    From the application to http://couldbefund.com:

    "Our project is a skateboarding parklette built within Scantlebury Park, intended to use skateboarding to connect the New Haven residents with the Yale community in an equitable way. Historically, the two communities have been separated both physically and socially. In providing a new space at the apex of several New Haven neighborhoods and Yale’s campus, this project offers a new opportunity for these communities to come together. Moreover, it positions the communities as equals. The project would be a joint venture between Yale University (The Yale Undergraduate Skateboarding Union & Schwarzman Center) and citizens of New Haven and be developed by both Yale personnel and New Haven residents. "

    "Our project requires approximately 4,000 square feet of unused city land on Scantlebury Park. In addition, we will require a contractor and/or designer with experience in skatepark design and construction. We are currently working to gain the assistance of one or more members of the Yale School of Architecture to collaborate and assist on our final park design.

    Both the Scantlebury Park location and skateboarding culture hold unique potential for accomplishing our goals because they exist at the intersection of dynamic communities of place and of practice. The park is situated in Dixwell, one of the city’s more underserved neighborhoods, while also on the frontier of Yale’s campus. Culturally, skateboarding is the nucleus of a creative community that values design, painting, photography, film, music and entrepreneurship, along with athletic expression. Geographically and culturally, this project offers a community space with uncommonly low barriers to entry and many thereof. "

  • 68 Mansfield Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    There is no place for residents us to park in the first long stretch of Mansfield from Sachem. Almost all of the cars are "visitors", although they only visit during working hours, and seem to be visiting people who live in the Yale residential colleges where no one lives.
    There are also a number of cars that aren't even pretending, and have no kind of permit at all.
    What is the city's plan to stop this kind of abuse? We would really like to hear how they are going to solve it, because sporadic ticketing doesn't do it. They need to CHANGE the system of visitor permits to stop the misuse.

    34 Woodland Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    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.
