83 1st St New Haven, CT, 06519, USA - City PointThis is approximately the 9th illegally-registered, out-of-state vehicle that has been parked on First St by a single owner, who lives at 80 First St, 1st floor apt. All of his vehicles are parked on the single block of First St, between Greenwich Ave & Howard Ave. He has boasted publicly (via social media) that he collects cars as a hobby and is using First St as his personal parking lot for his car collection! Four of his vehicles are registered in Vermont, the rest have ‘temporary’ Texas marker plates. As soon as these ‘temporary’ plates expire, they are replaced with new ‘temporary’ Texas plates. To me this suggests some fraudulent, criminal activity. Am I missing something here??
I have contacted: Police; Dept of Transportation, Traffic & Parking; Tax Collector; Tax Assessor. Despite the fact that he is cheating the city out of hundreds of dollars in tax revenue—and therefore essentially stealing all of the services which YOU taxpayers enjoy, such as on-street parking, trash pickup, street sweeping, snow plowing, public schools, fire & police protection—AND despite the fact that those ‘temporary’ Texas plates are continually being replaced 'might' suggest that something more nefarious is going on—I nevertheless am told that there is “absolutely nothing” your city can do about it—except issue a parking ticket for any of his cars that don’t move after 72 hours. (To avoid this, the owner simply moves his cars from one side of the street to the other.)
Dept. of Transportation, Traffic & Parking suggested I apply for a zoned “Residential Parking District”. So essentially I am being told that I myself must ‘jump through hoops’ to fix this problem, because Your and My Employees—i.e. city staff who are being paid via Your and My Taxes—simply can’t be bothered to fix this themselves.
If Mayor-elect Elicker uses NextDoor, I’d urge him to explain on the NextDoor site how he plans to address this problem of: 1. illegal car registrations, 2. the resultant revenue loss, 3. the dead wood among city staff who apparently think it requires “too much effort” to fix this. NOTE that if this much tax cheating is taking place on just ONE block of your city, imagine how many $$Thousands in tax revenue is being lost overall, because city staffers refuse to deal effectively with blatant illegal registrations.
Apparently it’s much easier to raise YOUR taxes than to address such massive revenue leaks. And if even a new mayor won’t fix this, then get ready to hold onto your wallets—because more tax hikes are inevitable.
543 George St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - West RiverThe rank smell on George street continues though the original request has been "closed" BUT NOT RESOLVED as everyone walking past the funeral home can tell you. To be clear, I am not placing blame on the funeral home but only pinpointing the EXACT location of the fecal stench that has been ongoing now, for 8 months. What's going on? If the lines were flushed last week and the construction on Dwight and George should not be causing the smell...can someone identify the cause and properly resolve the issue???????? PLEASE and THANK YOU!
Here is the initial thread:
79 Mill River St New Haven 06511, United States - Mill RiverSignificant accumulation of trash in back yard on mill river street. Landlord owns a number of poorly managed buildings. Is there any ordnance about this? Would LCI handle this ?
6–20 Webster St New Haven 06511, United States - Monterey PlaceDear Parking Enforcement: Every time there is an event at Scantlebury Park, we end up with cars parked illegally on both sides of Webster Street between Ashmun & Winchester. Does the city suspend the on-street parking laws during an event at the park? I sure hope not. What if we have a fire at one of the homes on this street? What if emergency equipment needs to get through - what then? Yes, I called the NHPD and reported it... but the cars are still there.
42-98 Union St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Wooster SquareWe held a cleanup at the Union Street Dog Park on Saturday, with volunteers from Quinnipiac University and Burzenski & Company staff. We filled almost 100 bags with leaves. I did not plan on the fact that the sidewalk had not been cleaned at all this fall, so we were a little overwhelmed with the amount of leaves, and had to make a few piles of leaves in the gutter. I am hoping the city will be able to pick them up when they do street sweeping, which is overdue. Thanks for your help!
47 Clark St New Haven 06511, United States - SOHU
I took the time to get a parking permit for my street and as a paid taxpayer I am not allowed to park near my home on Thursdays, Fridays or Saturdays as there are people with no parking passes parking all over!!!
If I double park I will get tagged and towed so why are they not tagged and towed?
Downtown has metered parking enforcement so why don’t we have permit parking enforcement?
I will return my passes since I really don’t need them
Hughes Pl New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Wooster SquareThere appears to be a water main leak or something near the corner with Green St (on the left side as you face Wooster Square). Water is bubbling up from the edge of the street. It does not appear to be a blocked drain, because the water is draining into the nearby street drain. It has been continuing for a few days.
Ellsworth Ave & Maple St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - EdgewoodThere are only 2 stop signs at a 4-way intersection at Ellsworth and Maple Street. Frequently cars speed on Ellsworth and collide with cars turning from Maple. This recent crash totaled 3 cars and could be avoided with stop signs or speed bumps to slow speeding cars.
175 Water St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Wooster SquareThis sidewalk is directly in front of High School in the Community, on Union Street between Water and Fair. It is overgrown, with illegal dumping behind the barriers as well as on the sidewalk itself. Students will begin walking here on Thursday and it needs attention, clearing and cleaning immediately.
Blake St & Springside Ave New Haven, CT, 06515, USA - West Rock
THERE IS NO ISSUE WITH THE TRAFFIC LIGHT EXCEPT NOT LONG ENOUGH TO LET CARS OUT OF SPRINGSIDE ONTO BLAKE.
TRAFFIC IS A JOKE. IF THE HOMEOWNERS ON SPRINGSIDE OR HARD STREET WANT TO GET OUT OF THEIR DRIVEWAYS THEY MUST DO IT BEFORE 3:00
THE PICTURES ATTACHED SHOW DAILY TRAFFIC WHICH STARTS AT 3:15 GOING DOWN SPRINGSIDE TO BLAKE. CARS ARE BLOCKED FROM COMING OUT OF HARD STREET BECAUSE INTERSECTION IS BLOCKED BY LINE OF TRAFFIC. CARS GO DOWN HARD STREET THE WTONG WAY CAUSING NEAR ACCIDENTS OR CUT THROUGH 86 SPRINGSIDE APARTMENTS.
IT IS NOW 3:52 AND CARS ARE STILL BACKED UP TO 132 SPRINGSIDE. AT HEIGHT OF TRAFFIC AS YOU CAN SEE IN PHOTOS BACKED ALL THE WAY PAST DRIVEWAY AT 146 SPRINGSIDE ON THE WAY TO COMMON GROUND HS.
SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE!!
WE ARE PRISONERS IN OUR OWN HOMES
I WOULD LIKE SOMEONE JUST TO COME AND SIT HERE A COUPLE OF AFTERNOONS.
I WOULD LOVE SOME KIND OF A RESPONSE!

The islands installed on Chapel Street to slow traffic at Chapel & Alden are overgrown and are a safety hazard to both traffic and pedestrians. People crossing can not always see if there is traffic coming, and worse, traffic might not see pedestrians.
Secondarily, they are an eyesore. They are extremely unwelcoming and the city allowing them to become overgrown cheapens the look of the neighborhood.
