  • 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!
  • 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.

    561 Edgewood Ave New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Edgewood

  • 410 Woodward Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Annex
    The trees in East Shore Park are in DESPERATE need of being cleaned of invasive and native species of vine which are growing well into the canopy of many of the trees. I would easily say that 95% of the trees inside the park along the areas of unmown lawn especially are affected. As well, two trees have been girdled by vandalism, with many more being girdled by invasives such as bittersweet. I understand the financial crisis of the city and the Park Departments decision to let the lawn go wild for the last two seasons prior to this one, but in doing this, invasives have come in and are scaffolding up most of the trees. This situation is approaching dire.
  • 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.

    Thank you.

  • 127-131 Bradley St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - SOHU

    Tenant in restaurant space on corner of Bradley and State has started promoting music and party events not allowed by the location's zoning permit. "Dashi" is advertising on social media as "Dashi Soulfood."

    Live bands are booked, and ads state the business will operate until 2 a.m.

    No music is allowed in this space, and the restaurant must close by 11p.m., according to local zoning laws.

  • 300 College Street New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown
    DIRT BIKE ABD ATV MADNESS! Packs of masked Juvenile Delinquents again storming down streets and running through pedestrian crossings. They are masked and pop wheelies. The noise is unbearable and it is a grave safety hazard. Add this noise to the neat constant ambulance sirens and downtown becomes a ghetto all summer. I have reported this issue since 2006 but it seems like the local cops are overwhelmed by little boys needing to show off.
  • 317 Alden Ave New Haven, CT 06515, USA - Westville
    The intersection of Alden Ave and Willard Street needs to be a four way stop for all vehicles. There are far too many accidents and near accidents at this location. Plus, it will stop the constant speeding down Alden Avenue. It is difficult and frightening to cross Alden Avenue for pedestrians.
  • 121 Bellevue Rd New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Beaver Hills
    This disease ridden tree is dropping branches and limbs on a constant basis. Please remove as we have many children and elderly on this block.
  • 965-999 Chapel Street New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown
    ALL SUMMER - homeless encampment and coordinated drug dealing on southwest corner of the green across from shakeshack. A gang has taken up under umbrellas that remain for months and use walkie talkies and bikes to run drugs through the green. I have alerted the NHPD and alderwoman to no avail. The are is a see of literal litter, trash and derelicts who have been harassing passers by and taunting them. They are vagrants who are eroding the quality of life of our city.
  • This Could Be... Acknowledged
    738-752 State St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Downtown
    This could be an inviting pedestrian link between new destinations in Nolo, September in Bangkok, and Boiling Soho—grounded establishments of Christopher Martins and D'Legna—and old staples in Goodfellas, L'Orcio, and Modern. St. Stanislaus is a beautiful church in the middle of them all, and Bradley Street Bike Co-op is a community hub. An art project for the walls of the underpass would liven up the area and bring the consistent foot traffic that these places need to thrive.
