  • 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.

    We have had mice in our home for 1.5 years. Pike International, the management company, has been made aware of this continuously.
    No action has been taken. Multiple requests have gone ignored. There are now mice in the kitchen, living room, and bedrooms. Please help.
  • 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.

  • 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.

    114 Foster Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    Crosswalk pedestrian signal needed at Foster and Eagle streets. There is a lot of stroller and dog traffic in this neighborhood, cars go too quickly down Foster, and with street parking on both sides of the street, it can be a challenge to see oncoming traffic. Something to slow or stop traffic to allow for safe street crossing is necessary. Thank you.

    543 George St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - West River
    The 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!

  • 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.

    Where are the in-street pedestrian crossing signs?
    I watched a pedestrian stuck trying to cross Sachem at Hillhouse. No cars would stop for her - I actually had to stop traffic with my bicycle!
    As I was cycling home through East Rock I wondered...where are all the in-street pedestrian crossing signs?
    I don't see them anywhere.
    As someone who remembers a time when they weren't allowed in New Haven, having the in-street pedestrian signs regularly, proactively installed is a small but important victory for all of us in the traffic safety community.
  • 687-701 State Street New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown

    If you are biking North on State St, the I-91 North Entrance (near Goodfellas) is a nightmare. Because of the speed on that section, bikes should stay all the way to the right, but then have to cross over the turn lane which tends to be very busy. Becomes awkward and dangerous for both the drivers and cyclists.

    Really needs some sort of green painted bike lane for bikes that (obviously) want to continue straight on State St, not turn onto the highway.

  • Lane shift Archived
    Whalley Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Beaver Hills
    Driving southeast on Whalley, the lanes shift at the light just before West Rock Ave. There are no markings on the pavement for guidance, so cars in the middle lane often shift to the left lane. I've been forced into oncoming traffic multiple times. Painting the lanes in the intersection would be extremely helpful.
  • 87-105 Sachem Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    Please 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.

    Someone drew a hopscotch board on the sidewalk in spray paint! Really? This is what our quaint little piece of state street has come to?
