  • Drainage Request Acknowledged
    388 Whalley Ave New Haven CT, 06511, USA - Edgewood
    The corner of Whalley and Norton does not drain anywhere. Every time it rains, there are large puddles along the curb all along Whalley and Norton. Additionally, when it gets cold after the rain, or it snows, there are large sections of ice all around the curb.
  • 470 James St New Haven, CT, 06513, USA - District
    There is a serious problem with oversized 18-wheel tractor trailers turning onto James Street only to find out they can't fit under the railroad overpass. I work at 470 James Street and have a window seat. At least 4 times a week, a truck pulls in, and then has to try to back out while impatient drivers keep trying to pass the truck. There should be a sign right at intersections of State Street, James Street and the I-91 exit ramp notifying truckers of the low bridge, or better yet, some kind of overheight warning signal.
  • 720 Edgewood Ave New Haven, CT, 06515, USA - Westville
    As I was trying to enjoy a quiet evening stroll this afternoon in Edgewood Park by the river with my 4 year old child, away from the horrible and constant noise of the quads and dirtbikes all up and down Edgewood Ave and surrounding streets, I was shocked to see one quad and one dirt bike reeming at full speed directly onto our path INSIDE THE PARK, which I have not experienced in the past years since the quads and dirt bikes took over our tax paying neighborhood. Thankfully I had my child's hand, otherwise he probably would have been crushed under their wheels after running away from the fear of the noise. The quad and dirt bike riders ripped past us and faded in the distance of the other side of the park before they came back AGAIN full speed. I then proceeded to choke on their diesel fumes. As we exited the park, we could tell the bikes continued their rides from one end of the park to the other. I can't even go to the park to breathe fresh air without having their fumes in my face. My son can't enjoy the natural oasis that this park once was without being threatened by high speed motor vehicles. PLEASE DO SOMETHING. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. I AM A TAX PAYING CITIZEN AND I WANT THIS TO BE FIXED, NOW! it has been YEARS and I know for a FACT I am not the only one in my neighborhood to be FED UP.
  • SNOW RELATED Archived
    29 Nash St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - East Rock
    In the three years that I have lived on this street, the homeowners at 29 Nash Street have never shoveled their sidewalk. Not once. It is my understanding that homeowners are required to do clear snow and ice within 24 hours of the end of a storm. Their sidewalk could currently pass as a skating rink, putting every pedestrian at risk.
  • 41 Cold Spring Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    Beautiful fireworks last night in East Rock Park, and great to see so many people out. Not great seeing all the trash left behind. The city is ignoring this resource. Everything from broken glass, fireworks boxes, soda cans, cardboard boxes, charcoal dumped next to trees - this in the park and on the streets around it. The maintenance of this park should not be left to the neighbors.
  • SNOW RELATED Archived
    195 Livingston St New Haven 06511, United States - East Rock
    The sidewalk on Coldspring St (Coldspring/Canner) by Livingston 219 has been very poorly cleared after the storm last night. I almost wiped out twice walking home alongside this house. I believe, if you have a home on a corner, you are responsible for shoveling both in front of and along the side of your house.
  • Orange St New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    Cold Spring, not the street, the actual spring, on the trail by the Mill River just NW of its intersection with Orange Street by the bridge, has been clogged with leaves for months. The basin fills up with water, the surrounding ground floods, causing perpetually muddy, slippery conditions and erosion. The leaves need to be removed so the spring can drain. The spot needs hardscaping and renovation, but that is a longer term issue.
  • 2-90 Sheffield Ave New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Prospect Hill

    I am in wheel chair and I catch public transportation. Today, when I was trying to get on the bus, there was too much snow on the curb and the handicap access ramps on the curbs for the bus to be able to lower the handicap accessible ramp, for to be able to mount with my wheel chair. When the driver tried to lower the ramp, because of the snow, there was a gap of about an inch or so. This is very unsafe for me, as well as other citizens. Please address this immediately. My concern today was at the bus stop I was at; however, this is happening all over the city. There has to be a better and safer system, to protect all the city's citizens, in times of inclement weather.

    Also, when it rains the water pulls at the end of the parking lot and drains into the bus stop. When the temperature is at freezing levels, this area turns into an ice rink. If I go over the curb to reach the bus, I can lose control of my wheel chair and slide directly into oncoming traffic.

  • 1274 Ella T Grasso Boulevard New Haven, Connecticut - Edgewood
    Traffic Lights and pedestrian signals have been out for over a month. This is a very busy intersection (Ella Grasso Blvd. and Chapel Street) and desperately needs the lights fixed. They have been out since the Hamden storm. I already reported it when I first noticed it almost six weeks ago by calling 946-8075 and still nothing has been done.
  • 580 Ellsworth Ave New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Beaver Hills
    The grate on this drain is cracked.
    It presents a fall and injury hazard
  • 612 George St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - West River
    There's water pooling on the road near City New Haven manhole cover. RWA was contacted with no results.
  • Farmington Canal Heritage Trl New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Dixwell
    A pickup truck full of what appeared to be broken furniture somehow managed to smash through the wooden fence between the Farmington Canal Trail and Canal St (closest to 136 Canal St) yesterday. I'm told it tried to drive away down the trail, was stopped by the barriers, backed up through the hole it had made, and drove off.
