City gov is not keeping up with demand for bicycling.

On Saturday night while taking a stroll around the green I came upon a large fleet of dattco busses and probably about 1000 kids lined up. When I asked someone where they all came from they told me they were Quinnipiac University kids and they do this every week. I decided to stay and watch this process. I observed a security guard who apparently worked for quinnipiac cleaning a bus full of vomit and sweeping it right onto the sidewalk. This continued for just about every bus that pulled up to the stop. I had enough and left. When I came back in the morning for my morning walk there were clumps of vomit all over left behind from the university. My question is why are they not responsible for cleaniing up there mess? Why does the city continue to allow this kind of behavior on the green? It is time to take back our green from these student who will only in time continue to destroy it. Any help would be appreciated Thanks

Several trees along this section of High Street were uprooted during the Harkness Tower renovations last year. With such towering buildings on both sides of the streets, replanting the trees would probably make the thoroughfare more human-scaled. Obviously not to be considered until there's some snow melt and softer soil.

Cars park M-F from 3:45-5pm.They block bus stops and traffic lane.Buses refuse to make cars move or won't double park and let passengers out.Mayor personally made aware on Primary Day as well as Michelle Duprey-Dir. of Services of Persons with Disabilities.Nothing has been done and Michelle has yet to return my calls.People should not have to go to further downtown bus stops to accomodate these people blocking stops.Mayor said he would personally call Knights but nothing has been done yet.They even park on the city sidewalks causing further cracks.

I was riding my bike to work this morning down Temple St. A city bus (the extra extra long kind, #1046 to be exact) speedily came up from behind me, passed me, and immediately pulled over to the right to make a stop, thus trapping me between it and the sidewalk. People then started getting out of the various doors and I just about knocked one over while I was slowing to a stop (of course apologizing and explaining that Gosh, sorry, I was just cut off by the bus!).
I feel as if city buses do not have regard for cyclists most times, and this incident was especially dangerous. The driver should have slowed down behind me and let me pass the bus stop area before pulling over, obviously.

The new LED lights are great for pedestrian safety and energy use - but when they are located right in front of a residence on the second floor - the light is nightmarishly strong. This pole I describe is a few feet from my windows.
Even with shades closed, the light level blasts right through the fabric .
But then again - there is no reason I should have to completely close my blinds just because it's dark outside. It's dark at 4:30 in the winter. I still want my blinds to be open then. The light is too strong to allow that.
The light really needs to have a baffle placed on it - to shield the light aimed at second floor buildings - but will allow the light to be aimed iat sidewalks. They do this in other cities.
Thank you for any help you can provide.

At the COOP high school on Crown St, buses routinely block the sidewalk forcing pedestrians into the street. Dangerous, illegal, and an accident/lawsuit waiting to happen.
