  • 235 Winchester Ave New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Dixwell

    This property has been blighted for some time. If the current owner doesn't have the ability or experience to start, let alone finish the project the city should force him to sell with daily blight fines. Enough is enough already.

    in addition the lropertyis unsafe with pieces of missing Fencing. Can something please be done?

  • 116 Mansfield St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Dixwell
    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.

    139 Ashmun St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Monterey Place
    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!!
  • 11 Lake Pl New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Dixwell

    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?

  • Mansfield St & Munson St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Prospect Hill
    8/11 photo of overgrowth in yard and onto sidewalk. This remains after the 2ft high lawn was finally mowed that day. This landlord, who lives elsewhere, but works at Yale, has regularly ignored upkeep of the yard. Texted him that day (no response) and have now emailed. We live in our rental and are tired of his neglect and the way it reflects on our neighborhood.

    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.
  • Goffe Street New Haven, CT - Dixwell

    There is a dangerous pothole on Goffe Street just off of Webster where it merges with Goffe. Drivers, myself included, have to swerve here to avoid being swallowed or damaging the car’s suspension, alignment and tires.

    There are more potholes up Goffe Street, past the intersection by Hillhouse Hill School, all the way to the end in Westville.

  • 46 Mansfield Street New Haven, Ct - Dixwell
    The city needs to start fining building owners when their tenants dump their refuse on the sidewalk two weeks and counting with this mess at 46 Mansfield. We see very little enforcement from the city.
  • 46 Tilton Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    This stretch of sidewalk has been decimated by street trees
  • 46 Mansfield Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    This house is always dumping their trash onto the curb. The majority of the trash is not in bins and is not in closed bags. Garbage spills out onto the sidewalk and blows into neighbors yards. This is an ongoing problem.

    46 Tilton St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Dixwell
    We need a sign that reads "Do not block driveways." Also, the Tilton Street sign on Mansfield is on the wrong side of Mansfield and it's old and hardly legible. We need a new one.
  • 182 Mansfield Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    These hedges make it hard to walk down the sidewalk without getting hit in the face.
