Osborn Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Beaver HillsThere is an abandoned gas station at the corner of Osborn Avenue and Blake. Neighbors have complained about this gas station for years and nothing is done about it. Now, it is full of leaves, garbage and someone sprayed graffiti all over it. It looks AWFUL and gives the neighborhood a bad feel. We are sick of this. This property either needs to be cleaned up or more importantly thrown down and maybe a nice park put in its place. We take pride in this neighborhood and this gas station just doesn't belong here.
41 Cold Spring St New Haven 06511, United States - East RockOverflowing trash cans in the pavilion area of East Rock Park’s College Woods. Animals are breaking into all the loose trash and spreading garbage all over the park. This is now happening EVERY weekend! I took this photo on Sunday morning, so the additional trash of an another entire day of weekend park visitors still needs to be accommodated. It’s a mockery of to all of us who work hard to keep our parks and public space clean. Our Youth at Work just spent all summer laboring to pick up trash in the park. Mayor Harp, Becky Bombero, what are you going to do to address this ongoing problem? The status quo is unsustainable and unacceptable.
Sea Street New Haven, Connecticut - HillDrivers are routinely making illegal left turns traveling northwest on Sea St on to Ella Grasso Blvd. Not only does this hold up traffic through the intersection, a driver behind a left-turning vehicle has to stop suddenly when the car in front stops unexpectedly. I have watched several close calls coming from the other direction, and had my own close calls when drivers don't signal their intentions and just stop to wait to make the turn. There needs to be much more enforcement in this dangerous intersection.
Nash St New Haven, Connecticut - East RockWhy do plows continuously plow toward the even side of the street and up against all cars. The odd side of the street is completely open.
Ferry St New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham SquareThe prostitution, drug sales & use of drugs has become highly visible along Ferry St. Especially Chapel St intersection through
Peck St. Toni Harp and the narcotics unit need to start riding by so you can see what's going on our streets so you can take action before we make national news again. The prostitutes and John's are coming in from the out skirts; we need to start exposing them, by arresting them and impounding their cars and posting the mug shots; maybe then they will think twice before coming to New Haven to do your dirt
Whitney Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Yale University Campus
Almost a day after the snowstorm ended, Whitney Avenue, the main North-South street in the city, has STILL not been cleared and it is still covered with several inches of snow and ice and slush. Why aren't there plows out there NOW (at 2:30 PM) clearing the street? Who is responsible for supervising snow clearance in the winter? They seem to be either absent or incompetent.
Snow clearance in New Haven is always very poor in the winter, but this might be even poorer than usual. Every winter when you drive down Whitney Avenue from Hamden after a snowstorm, the streets have been nicely cleared in Hamden, but they are still covered with snow as soon as you cross the in New Haven line. The surrounding towns always do a much better job of snow clearance than New Haven. Why?

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.
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.
4 Wall St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Town_GreenThe car jacking reported on the news last Wednesday May 10 originated at the city-owned commuter lot at State and Wall. The victim reported seeing 3 teens loitering at the edge of the lot but assumed someone was picking them up, so was surprised by the confrontation as he exited the vehicle. Fortunately, the victim is ok and the teens were apprehended quickly with the help of witnesses. Please continue to be vigilant and note any unusual situations (like teens at a commuter lot where there should be only adult commuters).

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.
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!
