See Click Fix New Haven, CT - DowntownDoes anybody else think that there should be a desperate section on SCF for "junk on sidewalk" posts? It just seems to me that there are too many of these and they do little to solve the issue. New Haven isn't overflowing with debris, but you would think otherwise reading through on a daily basis.
543 George St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - West RiverThe rank smell on George street continues though the original request has been "closed" BUT NOT RESOLVED as everyone walking past the funeral home can tell you. To be clear, I am not placing blame on the funeral home but only pinpointing the EXACT location of the fecal stench that has been ongoing now, for 8 months. What's going on? If the lines were flushed last week and the construction on Dwight and George should not be causing the smell...can someone identify the cause and properly resolve the issue???????? PLEASE and THANK YOU!
Here is the initial thread:
438 Whitney Ave New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Prospect HillThis Saturday I removed SEVEN advertising signs (all for a supposedly cheap TV, phone, and Internet service provider) from utility poles at 400 Whitney Avenue, 438 Whitney, 443 Whitney, 450 Whitney (Bethesda Lutheran Church), 611 Whitney, and two other locations on Whitney. The signs were all posted in violation of New Haven regulations. It would be helpful if Public Works or the Police Department would call the phone number on these signs, 860-869-0284, and tell the company that signs are not allowed to be posted on utility poles. Perhaps the advertiser will get the message. The signs are visual clutter.
140 Bradley Street New Haven, Connecticut - SOHU
Every night around 530-630PM lately, there are almost no spots available on the State Street side of Bradley. I'm not sure if this is due to the crowd at Dashi, people visiting the bike shop or the combination of the two but something seriously needs to be done.
Why are violators never ticketed? I don't even remember the last time I've seen cars with tickets on them. Residents on Bradley would all appreciate some CONSISTENT enforcement. Please.
Fountain Street New Haven, Connecticut - Westville
I live on Fountain Street, a state road and commuter route for individuals coming to New Haven area. There are no public trash receptacles on the street, despite being a major bus route with heavy pedestrian traffic.
Is there any enforcement of littering laws in New Haven?
Are there plans to provide city maintained trash receptacles near bus stops?
This was waiting for me tonight when I got home, where the road meets my driveway. Not the most vile thing I've ever seen, but seriously, who throws a bag filled with half eaten Chinese takeout out of their car in a residential area? Or anywhere?
I find this highly annoying --both pedestrian and automobile litter. I feel like a character in Women in the Dunes.
721 Orange St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - East Rock
Last month I posted about a butcher at P&M Orange St Market consistently wearing his mask below his face, despite my complaints. (I remembered this guy—an older man with gray facial hair—in particular because he was openly grumbling about COVID not being a big deal at the beginning of the pandemic.) One morning this week I was back in the store and saw the same guy with his mask below his mouth, working with food, and helping customers.
I’m not in the habit of ratting people out like this. I would just like to feel safe when I shop at a favorite local establishment.
49 Edwards New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
The street sweeping enforcers of New Haven say that they post their signs 48 hours in advance to warn residents about upcoming street sweeping/towing. They also say there is an alert that goes out. I know this because I moved here last month and learned by having my car towed.
This time, the no parking ban signs were posted LESS THAN 24 HOURS in advance.
I took a photo of my street in East Rock on Monday at 6:45 am (attached - note times the photos were taken), knowing that the opposite side would be cleaned Tuesday at the same time and signs should have been posted Sunday. When I went out that morning to confirm this, there were NO SIGNS POTED ANYWHERE.
If the city is going to tow and tag, then they need to uphold their timeline of posting the signs 48 hours in advance.
I also saw cars being towed from the street BEFORE the ban was in effect, at 6:45 am (no parking is for 7am-3pm).
New Haven street sweeping folks, what gives? Be consistent or stop ticketing and towing.
Ellsworth Ave & Goffe Ter New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Beaver HillsAm I the only one who is suffering property damage at the hands of the orthodox Lubavitch children on Ellsworth Avenue? They stomp down my little fence, they stomp on my garden, with deliberate menace. They jet down our sidewalks on their scooters and bikes, and they expect you to get out or their way. I have tried to have a conversation about this with the parents, but they deny everything, even when it happens if front of their eyes. No one apologizes. They blame it on Black children. I have been fighting this for two years now. I see other people have put up fences around the front of their property lately. Are they just targeting me because I complained, or is there more? I am about to go to the police with video documenting their actions. But I would like to have corroborating evidence, if possible. I'm not targeting a religion or an ethnicity, and I don't solicit comments from racist activists. These are the children and parents of one congregation. These parents need to discipline their children and teach them respect for other people's property and neighborhood.
9 Cliff St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Prospect Hill
I’d like to make a complaint about the dogs off leash in Edgerton Park.
The sign on the way into the park specifically states dogs are to be kept on leash, however, once you around the bend get to that first big hill on your way in, dogs are always running off leash.
On 1/24/21 (mid afternoon), my seven- year- old and his friend were chased by a large dog that came out of nowhere- no owner in site. They were terrified. After I managed to wrangle the dog I must’ve shouted “ who’s dog is this?” several times before the owner leisurely walked over to claim his animal. No apology and a “no harm, no foul” attitude. This is not the first time. I’m tired of these dogs beings off leash and even more tired of their lackadaisical owners who could care less about where their animals go and what they do. Edgerton is not a dog park. And the thing they don’t seem to realize is that every time that happens, they’ve gotten lucky- should the situation have gone awry, and someone was injured, the outcome would’ve been bad for everyone involved. So, for the sake of all, I would like to see the situation rectified ASAP.
978 State St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Bishop-HineSomeone drew a hopscotch board on the sidewalk in spray paint! Really? This is what our quaint little piece of state street has come to?
87-105 Sachem Street New Haven, Connecticut - DixwellPlease bring back the STOP sign at corner of Winchester and Sachem. There is bicycle traffic entering and exiting the Farmington Canal Trail here, and the pedestrian crosswalk does not provide enough protection. Cars traveling from Winchester used to have to come to a full stop, now they barely slow down if there is no pedestrian in crosswalk. This creates unsafe conditions for bike cross-traffic.
2-90 Sheffield Ave New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Prospect Hill
I am in wheel chair and I catch public transportation. Today, when I was trying to get on the bus, there was too much snow on the curb and the handicap access ramps on the curbs for the bus to be able to lower the handicap accessible ramp, for to be able to mount with my wheel chair. When the driver tried to lower the ramp, because of the snow, there was a gap of about an inch or so. This is very unsafe for me, as well as other citizens. Please address this immediately. My concern today was at the bus stop I was at; however, this is happening all over the city. There has to be a better and safer system, to protect all the city's citizens, in times of inclement weather.
Also, when it rains the water pulls at the end of the parking lot and drains into the bus stop. When the temperature is at freezing levels, this area turns into an ice rink. If I go over the curb to reach the bus, I can lose control of my wheel chair and slide directly into oncoming traffic.
