2 Howard Avenue New Haven, CT 06519, United States of America - City PointThese people that live in this house continue to use the sidewalk as a driveway. They need to be told the sidewalk isn't for their vehicles. It's 22 Howard Ave. this needs to be dealt with.
196 Greenwich Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - City PointJust 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!
66 1st St New Haven, CT, 06519, USA - City PointAn oldie but goodie! Green & white BMW with VT marker FRT 486. Registered in VT--despite fact that owner has resided in first floor apt of 80 First St for about 4 years. I reported this almost a year ago: https://seeclickfix.com/issues/5163818-illegal-car-3-first-st-between-greenwich-howard BUT who cares? I'm sure city employees have much more important things to do than collect the revenue THAT PAYS FOR YOUR SALARIES!!!!
181 Putnam Street New Haven, Connecticut - HillPLEASE 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!
112 Greenwich Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - City PointHome owner at 112 Greenwich Avenue routinely allows her pit bull to roam freely on street. My mail carrier was recently prevented from making a delivery to my home because he felt threatened. This was verified to me by the a post office supervisor when I inquired about not receiving my package on the expected date. Issue has been previously reported to animal control with no action taken.
520 Howard Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - HillThe city needs to have a system for plowing BOTH sides of residential streets. After the first odd-side parking ban, and plowing of the odd side of the street, the next step should be an EVEN side parking ban, and cleaning the EVEN side.
Alternate side of the street snow removal is typical in cities, and has been the norm in all the northern cities and towns where I have lived.
New Haven's odd approach means that after a big snowfall, if there is a second storm residents can't park on the even side of the street, because it is blocked with huge mounds of snow. If the city never removes the snow after each storm, things become more difficult with each storm.
Why doesn't New Haven follow a logical system to guarantee clear streets during the winter?

Should NOT be given a Certificate of Occupancy [CO] until this building has been EXTENSIVELY rehabilitated.
I personally inspected the interior when it recently was bank-owned and the interior is completely dilapidated and hazardous.
In addition to walls, ceilings, etc. as well as rodent infestation, all MECHANICAL systems are in disrepair and not safe:
ADDITIONALLY, there are innumerable building and Housing Code violations.
According to the website, portal.viewpermit. com
The last permit pulled for 332 HOWARD AV [i.e., that is viewable online] was on 8/8/2014 for “Siding : remove/replace wood siding as needed”
>>ALSO please be aware that this new owner, Jianchao Xu has a NOTORIOUS reputation for NOT Complying with codes and of Utterly ignoring Orders by city officials to rectify problems.

350-370 Greenwich Ave New Haven, CT - City PointThere are always mice and or rats going into the back of those houses starting at # 370. On Garbage day the amount of garbage overflowing is bringing more animals to the street. It's not properly stored in containers, it's overflowing. There is also a strong smell of gas between 350 and 370 Greenwich ave. The strongest around house # 370. And the smell of dog Feces is overwhelming in the same area.

Washington Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Hill
Does anyone know what to do with this issue?
My car was hit by a huge chunk of paving stones/debris from the back of a Tilcon truck when they were paving Washington Ave last month.
I pulled over to talk to one of the men in the traffic vests thinking that they were police or worked for the town — but the one I would up speaking with wasn’t. He actually was a contract worker and could barely speak English. I showed him the damage and he told me to “call the town.”
I know of some people who have had the damage to their cars paid for by the town from potholes and other such damage (road debris from the recent tornado also comes to mind). I don’t think it is fair to have to put a claim into my insurance and have to pay my deductible (I may as well just pay out of pocket to avoid the increased premium)!
Has this happened to anyone else? Has the town helped by paying for the damage? If I were to contact the town, who do you recommend I call?
Any assistance is greatly appreciated!
