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!!

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.

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.
Wexler grant school is the worst school in the
city. thank god my kids don't go there. I know that it is summer but you can't make a phone call. a window has been smashed a side door is chained from the outside, if the lock is broken call a locksmith that is a real safety issue. gang graffiti on the building that has been there for at least 6 months. how do you expect kids to learn if that is around. the little park and parking lot is overgrown with pricker bushes. that is always a problem. not to mention the kids that have so little respect they can't use a trash can. the kids are all around the school Tonite cursing up a storm the 13 14 year olds were having the little kids fight. the police need to ride through stop and talk to these kids. it's obvious the parents are useless. I wish I could run for mayor but you have to have democrape in your name. I didn't spell it wrong. somebody needs to go to this hellhole school
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?

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?
