  • 149 Eagle Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    VOTE 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.
  • 302-324 College Street New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown
    I recently moved from Manhattan to New Haven and was shocked (and a little deafened) by the higher volume of police and ambulance sirens in this city. Why are the sirens so loud, especially compared to a much larger city with high background sound levels? If possible, lowering the volume to be comparable to other cities will improve hearing and quality of life.
  • Farnam Drive New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    There is a growing homeless encampment (one tent last week, four as of this morning) on the (unofficial, unmapped) trail that runs closest to The Mill River and parallel to Farnam Dr. in East Rock Park
  • Policing Issue Acknowledged
    Nash Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    There 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.
  • 29 Tour Avenue New Haven Connecticut - Westville
    The preschool at 3 Tour Avenue would like access to the river walk, located next to the playground at 29 Tour Avenue. We would like an opening created in the metal fence along Tour Avenue. This way, we can easily take our preschoolers for walks along the river or over to the playground on Blake Street. We would also appreciate a dedicated crosswalk on Tour from our playground to the river walk. We thank the city in advance for making this happen!

  • Traffic/Road Safety Acknowledged
    538-542 Central Ave New Haven, CT 06515, USA - Westville
    Second crash in as many months this morning at Willard & Central. An all-way stop would be much safer!
  • Mill River Trail New Haven Connecticut - East Rock
    To 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.
  • 126 Livingston St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - East Rock
    Car broken into on corner of Willow and Livingston. Nothing stolen out of car. Window smashed. Occurred between 11:00 PM and 7:30 AM.
  • Chapel Street And Alden Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Westville

    Chapel Street remains a raceway in Westville with another three accidents at the intersection of Alden Avenue within the past few weeks. Even after the addition of bumped out curbs and medians, drivers have figured out that they can maintain their speed while flying through this area. Unfortunately, the medians in the road have had no effect on the speed and even caused issues with neighbors entering and exiting their own driveways and reduced parking for those with small driveways.

    Perhaps a roundabout at the intersections of Alden Avenue and Yale Avenue will slow speeders down in this area. Another idea, in addition to the roundabouts is cameras, discretely placed in several locations from Yale Avenue to Forest Road, to catch speeders who would then receive tickets along with a photo catching them in the act. Putting up speed trackers or stationing a police car on the street every once in awhile will not slow folks down. Time to remove the medians and try another option.

  • 760 Chapel Street New Haven, Connecticut - Town_Green

    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?

  • New Haven New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown
    I 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.
