149 Eagle Street New Haven, Connecticut - East RockVOTE if you want the city to plow the snow on BOTH sides of the street!
New Haven's policy of only ever plowing the odd side of residential streets is wacky.
Now that the odd side is more or less clear, we won't be able to park back on the even side for the next storm, because it will be blocked by frozen piles of snow left behind from people digging themselves out.
VOTE if you want the city to have a second day of plowing the EVEN side of the street, when everyone should move to the ODD side.
Intersection Of Cold Spring And Livingston Streets New Haven, Connecticut - East RockThere have been countless accidents at this intersection (and near accidents). We desperately need speed humps, a stop light, or other traffic calming measures to make this a safer intersection for all the children walking to schools and parks.
238 College St New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown
College Street would be best suited as a pedestrian mall, allowing continued human development in the area and providing a safe, pleasurable environment for citizens without the stress of vehicular traffic, which can use countless other roads.

Nash Street New Haven, Connecticut - East RockThere are 2 feuding neighbors on Nash Street, both middle-aged white males with mental health disorders and alcohol and or drug addictions. They have begun to harass new graduate students neighbors with stories and unwelcomed conversation/personal space invasions. 1 of the men (who lives next to the Park on Nash) has been seen in the streets dancing with a sword, mop and broom, in a bathrobe, underwear, or sometimes in the nude. He was also allegedly arrested last Thursday for sexually harassing a Post Office worker on Nash Street. The other neighbor claims to own seventeen houses on the street, including the park, but he is believed to actually live in East Haven. It would be helpful to have more active policing on this street until things settle down and people feel safe again. If police officers could physically walk up and down Nash Street 1-2x a day to see what is taking place on a daily basis maybe there is something that can be done. Neighbors are in fear.
468–498 James St New Haven 06513, United States - Mill RiverThere is no pedestrian crosswalk here at the offramp and there is no safe way to walk from James to State Street. This becomes a problem as the district has now opened.
888 Grand Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Wooster Square
As a female resident of NHV who has to walk down Grand Avenue every day, I've become exhausted by the loitering, intimidation, and harassment I face almost every day just going to and from work. I get watched going in and out of my apartment and followed, stalked by cars driving next to me down the street - nowhere else in New Haven except that street. Today was the final straw when one man in particular made it clear what his intentions were as he screamed at me when I walked by and I'm concerned I may see him again.
The liquor store owners are amazing people and I have nothing but good things to say about them, but the people the store attracts has made Grand Avenue terrifying to walk down coupled with the few abandoned buildings and empty lots. The store is maybe 35% of the problem. the lack of policing is the rest.
Please...PLEASE, can a police car be stationed here throughout the day and night? I see none. Ever. If I do, they're just driving through to get to somewhere else. I live so close to downtown that I want to be able to enjoy walking there with some sense of security.
47-75 Trumbull St New Haven Ct 06510 USA - Yale University CampusAlmost every day on my way to work from downtown to Yale's School of Management, I am nearly hit by a car. The northbound cars turning right from Whitney Avenue onto Trumbull Street do NOT realize that the pedestrian walk signal is on and that they must yield to pedestrians. When the pedestrian walk sign is on and I try to cross, the turning cars continue driving at me and drivers blow their horns and yell at me. Even more stressful than these antagonizing interactions is the knowledge that one day someone probably will be hit and killed/severely injured. Traffic signage MUST be improved to indicate that right-turning cars must yield to pedestrians, or the pedestrian walk light should be rewired to only turn on when the Whitney Avenue light is red. Perhaps clearer cross-walk lines should also be instituted. This intersection is heavily trafficked by employees and students every single day, so I exhort the City to make this a priority.
Mill River Trail New Haven Connecticut - East RockTo add to the numerous similar issues posted by others, there is a large encampment under I-91 bridge along the Mill River. There are also smaller encampments along the Mill River just beyond the Willow St bridge heading up the river.
Speaks for itself, I don't need to reiterate the concerns made by others on the same type of topic. City needs to take action.
760 Chapel Street New Haven, Connecticut - 770 Chapel Big
We need more police presence on the 700 Block of Chapel Street. In the last three days a woman who works in our building was grabbed by the arm by a man at the bus stop. Also a man just urinated on the doorway to 760 Chapel Street. When I caught him, he ran across the street in to a late model Pontiac driven by an older woman.
Is it possible to have more police patrolling the streets and bus stops in this area so everyone feels safe and issues like this decrease?
126 Livingston St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - East RockCar broken into on corner of Willow and Livingston. Nothing stolen out of car. Window smashed. Occurred between 11:00 PM and 7:30 AM.
New Haven New Haven, Connecticut - DowntownI have a suggestion for the city. Right now is a perfect time to do an LCI ticketing blitzkrieg for unshovelled sidewalks. I know the city has always been hesitant to enforce this law because of the unpredictability of storms and the chance that a homeowner isn't able bodied. However, I've personally observed many homes with plowed direways and unshovelled sidewalks. This is utterly selfish and unaccceptable and should be an easy red flag for the city to ticket.
Willow Street Exit 6 New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
The homeless camp by the water in the woods off of Exit 6 between the off ramps from 91 N and 91 S is starting up again and it needs to be broken up ASAP! I can not comprehend how this is allowed to go on.
The other night my wife and I were coming off the exit and we saw a man carrying a bull rake, shovel and a Fed-Ex package walking towards the camp coming down Willow St. from the East Rock area. He opened the package, took whatever was inside, threw the box on the ground and kept walking towards the camp. I hate to jump to conclusions but it seems pretty clear that this individual stole the rake and shovel from someone's yard and stole the Fed-Ex package from someone's yard. I live in East Rock and had several packages stolen off my porch last summer. I'm not saying these individuals are responsible but they are clearly committing crime in the East Rock area and I am sick of it.
Last summer this camp was allowed to exist and grow into the late fall. The individuals who are living here litter the area with their garbage and regularly hold up traffic with their panhandling. Can somebody please stop looking the other way and do something about this?
