Notified About

  • 17 Tilton Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    Bulk items on this street at several location.
  • 4 Webster St New Haven 06511, United States - Dixwell
    Please repair/replace the in-street pedestrian sign here. There are a lot of people out enjoying the canal trail on a nice summer day. (I tried a DIY repair but it didn’t hold.)
  • 19 Tilton Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    This house leaves its garbage and recycling totes out 24/7. It is Friday; trash pickup was Tuesday. Still there. This issue never goes away. Can you please fine them enough money that they’ll remove the bins from the sidewalk?
  • 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?
  • 44 Winchester Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    City tree has caused sidewalk to buckle as well as the curb. Sidewalk is a tripping safety hazard. I have tripped and have observed many pedestrians doing the same. I know I am responsible for keeping the sidewalk clean/shoveled but I do not believe I am responsible for any damages caused by the tree planted by the city. Thank you.

  • Signs Acknowledged
    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.
  • 46 Mansfield New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    The owner of 46 Mansfield has, once again, blown all his yard clippings into the street. The street was swept this week, and will not be swept until next month, and he has made it look like crap. He also does this in the fall with the leaves. Can the city do anything to stop this? It's SO inconsiderate to the rest of us who try to keep things clean, and who don't throw our mess into the public space.
  • 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.
  • 43 Woodland St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Dixwell
    It's why they do it. Because they know the city is dysfunctional.

    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. "
