UI is removing healthy trees from our neighborhood park- please advise them immediately not to remove any more trees from this location. The trees provide necessary shade and ambiance. Removing more trees will destroy this beautiful neighborhood gem.
After paving Putnam Ave, the center stripe and paint lines have not been repainted. This is particularly a problem at corner of Putnam and Whitney where the “stop line” is set back several car lengths from the corner for safety reasons. In addition to painting the lines, it would be helpful to replace the sign that said “Stop Here” . The setback is necessary for trucks making turn onto Putnam and the paint and sign are required to make that stopping point obvious as well as making the center line clear the full length of Putnam Ave.
Woodlawn St. torn up right about here. This stretch of the street seems to get torn up every 6 months. I'm pretty sure that won't be shown by SCF tickets, but it might. My expertise isn't in roads, so I don't know why this happens, but I hope that the street will be inspected for a longterm fix in addition to the potholes getting patched.
Although I'd like to report each and every serious pothole on Mt Carmel Ave, there are far too many and the road too dangerous to take pictures. After living on this road for the last 23 years, I've come to understand that as a minor backroad on the town's border, it does not recieve the same care as the town's major roads. However, with the continual expansion of Quinnipiac and the growing popularity of the road as a thruway between North Haven, Wallingford, and Hamden (including giant trucks that are no longer prohibited from using the road), this road has seen more traffic than ever before and its condition is worse than ever before. I have the greatest respect for the hardworking members of the Public Works department and I'd like to commend them on their work. However, it seems as if they're on the road almost once a week during the winter months and they still can't keep up with the giant holes that are no longer fillable with just patch. People do not drive slowly on this road and anyone who cares about the integrity of their vehicle (including myself who previously had a tire and rim damaged from a town road) is left with no choice but to swerve around all the major potholes causing an extremely dangerous situation on an already small and narrow road. The neighborhood association as well as employees from Sleeping Giant State Park have repeatedly voiced these same concerns. I truly hope this road is at the top of the list for repaving in the Spring, as the holes get wider and deeper and the likelihood of a serious accident or vehicle damage increases. Thank you very much for taking the time to read this and passing it on to the appropriate authority.
I have noticed that some of the residents of Hamden have been placing bulk trash out for pick up throughout the summer and really almost anytime before the scheduled pick up months of October and April. This really ruins the appearance of our town and it should be an offense punishable without warning. Please post the schedule for pick up and perhaps send a reminder with tax bills.
This in fact may be a way to generate revenue by enforcing hefty fines for littering to the selfish offenders filling our streets with blight.
