Hello. I have lived in this house for ten years. I have finally given up with this town. Not because of building and zoning but because of the overwhelming cases they must have. I have decided to put my house on the market and even though I will be living without a house, I will be much happier knowing I am one step closer to relocation. I have been looking at a few blanket/ tarps wrapped in leaves and a pink bag full of something since the fall time. I question if this is just covering the toxic paints that were cleaned from the basement last year. Not only that but there is garbage piled up on each side of the house. The front porches have had furniture store on it in a manner in which it can not even be used for months. Can the city of west haven help me clean this area up? I have been looking at this kind of thing for a while and have had enough. The landlord does not care about this area at all as we have had to do this before. I think they should be sited for blight and forced to clean up the property that she collects rent on and we are forced to look at, which actually brings our property value drown. I'd also question the legality of some of the cars that are parked at night time in at the intersection of east and William st. I have seen people take license plates off one car and put them on another to appear like they are legit. I have to pay at least 8k per year in order to live here. Do you think we can have a cruiser run the plates on a few vehicles down here to make sure they are registered to the cars they belong to and current? Lastley, props up to building and zoning and the w.h.p.d. , they certainly have their hands full and can be overwhelmed in this town. Good luck to everybody working and striving to make this a better place or just get out! Thanks.
West Spring And Stevens West Haven, CT - West Haven
There are several holes on
West Spring and Stevens
I fell yesterday in one of the cracks and hole. There are no sidewalks you have to walk out in the street. The Stevens Street bridge over pass and sidewalks are dirt and in the summer when I walk the tree branches are alwasy sticking out that I have to walk in the street
270 Center Street West Haven, CT 06516, USA - West Haven
The dumpsters in the parking lot is always overflowing and all over the ground. Rats can be seen near the trash regularly. There is also quite a bit glass in the parking lot that seems to come from the bar that shares the same parking lot. The whole area is rarely cleaned.
Fountain Terrace has become a speedway by cars using it as a shortcut
between Hopkins, Curtis Drive and Fountain Street. They come over the steep hill at Curtis Drive or onto Fountain Terrace from Fountain St. doing 35-40. As there are no sidewalks on Fountain Terrace, this hazard invites an accident waiting to happen. There is also a hazard from a series of potholes at the crest of the hill going down into Curtis Drive.
118 Anderson Avenue West Haven, Connecticut - West Haven
This is a regular occurrence: the plow clears the intersection -- in this case, Anderson and Noble, and dumps the entire load of snow right onto the curbcut at the crosswalk. Message to pedestrians: you're out of luck, suckers; get a car, get a life, because if you're a pedestrian, you're a piece of you-know-what.
123 Prospect Ave West Haven, CT 06516 - West Haven
Instead of using the public sewer system, this particular house drains their shower water through a pipe onto the sidewalk and street daily between 6:30-8:00am. Sudsy, soapy water is not safe for children to play in or animals to accidentally drink. This is a health hazard, but the city building department does nothing- when we've reported this, we were told the women who live there claim it is a pipe from a sump pump. Well, none of the other sump pumps on the hill have run for over a week (it hasn't rained for 9 days!) and when they do run, it is not with scented bubbling water at the same time we happen to shower, it is after (or during a storm)- the women in this house have no respect for the environment or people around them.
Dog will not stop barking at 26 Colonial Boulevard. The minute the dog is put outside it starts barking and does not stop... ever. This Saturday the dog barked for 3 solid hours. Last Saturday it was 7 hours. It is not normal for dogs to bark in this manner and is cruel to allow it to continue for both the dog and your neighbors!!!!
Every year around the 4th of July, residents and visitors set off fireworks every night, sometimes for weeks. Most of the fireworks are illegal in CT, yet the Police do nothing to stop them. Dogs are traumatized by the explosions, people can't sleep (as the noise usually goes on until very late at night), and shoreline wildlife is severely disturbed. While I can understand the desire to celebrate, could the celebrations be limited to JULY 4TH ONLY? Also, the WH Police Dept. should be ticketing those with illegal fireworks.
Corner Of Thomas St And East Ave West Haven, Connecticut - West Haven
Between 11pm and 3am, alot of people pulling up to area of side yard gate on Thomas St. near the corner of East St. Someone comes out the gate, waits on the sidewalk, car pulls up, is there for less than one minute speaking with the person then leaves. The person goes back thru the gate and either goes into the house on the corner or the next house in on East St. Savin Rock Community School is diagonally across the street!
