77 First St New Haven, Connecticut 06519 - City Point
White Chevrolet van has NO PLATES and has been parked on First St, between Greenwich & Howard Aves for over a year. Should have been registered in CT many, many months ago. Owner is not paying New Haven car tax that’s due. Needs to be ticketed and booted. “Listen, I know you hate waiting at the DMV to register vehicles. Now you don’t have to! Just park your unregistered vehicle at The First Street Illegal Car Zone™ where no one will ever notice that your car doesn’t even have plates!”
There is no in-road pedestrian sign at this busy mid-block crosswalk. This crosswalk is very long and pedestrians have quite a distance to cross. I have not seen the in-road pedestrian signs at other busy mid-block crosswalks elsewhere downtown. For the safety of everyone who uses these mid-block crossing, these should be replaced as soon as possible.
Thanks very much.
South Water Street New Haven, Connecticut - City Point
The "City Point Kitchen" restaurant (South Water Street) has placed a large sign advertising their business blocking the handicapped ramp leading up to the sidewalk.I Have a handicapped family member who lives in this area and resent this lack of consideration for others. Ironically, the restaurant owner is medical doctor! One would think he would know better. Placing the sign on city property is illegal. Blocking a handicapped ramp with a private business sign adds immoral to the mix.
Drivers 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.
I am a monthly user of this non-paved outdoor lot and there are numerous large potholes at the entrance and throughout the lot that present a hazard to vehicles. In past year these potholes were filled with gravel, but they have not been filled them this year.
PLEASE enforce parking ban on Putnam st. There are 4 cars between Howard and 181 Putnam on the odd side of the street. These cars do not belong to residents. Residents are following the parking ban and are all on the even side. When the ban is not enforced, the entire street and Dewitt street do not get plowed. last time it snowed the street was NEVER cleared!
Car painting and repairs. The smell of the paint is so extreme we have to close our windows. Car body work with electric tools, grinding and sanding. In addition to racing engines into the night and all weekend, along with loud music. This is going on 7 days a week. Please put a stop to this.
196 Greenwich Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - City Point
Just read New Haven's warning about residents blowing leaves into the street and the fact that they will be given a hefty fine if this occures. The maintenance crews at Saint Raphael's Hospt. are allowed to blow their leaves into the street on Chapel Street and they are picked up by the city' street sweeping crew. As a former employee I've seen it with my own eyes and as a New Haven home owner and resident I resent the special treatment and double standard. I am a tax payer! The hospital is non prophet thus they don't pay taxes. With that reality I am paying for this pick-up! All tax payers in New Haven should have a hard time with this practice and protest.The tree lines strip was planted by the city. Why should it be my labor and expense to dispose of THOSE leaves? If our mayor can find 4 grand in the city budget to buy uniforms for two receptionists maybe SHE can pay for my leaves!
