The City of New Haven promised a coordinated effort of plowing and snow removal. While it is improved, the same problem as always is still present: failure to plow to the curb. Whitney Avenue northbound is now effectively a one-lane road. New Haven needs to properly plow the first time, and each time, to avoid this issue.

City of New Haven please get your act together and coordinate your email and text messages that explain the timing of City Parking Bans compared with time allotment for using the recommended alternative garage locations.
The City of New Haven enforced a City wide parking ban until 12:00pm, 03 February 2015, however the suggested alternative parking sites (i.e. Temple Garage) lifted their ban at 7:00am! Very expensive when receiving the municipal Text and Email about the parking ban at 11:30am.

Over the last two storms, the city of New Haven has begun posting unhelpful responses in SCF regarding parking / towing issues.
After the blzzard, "City of New Haven" responded to many posts complaining about the draconian towing due to a poor plowing operation run by the city. The response "we said there would be a parking ban, CLOSED". Classy, at least use your name when you are posting from an official city method of communication and ignoring the
Fast forward to this storm. First we see the city post nitofcation of the parking ban about 6 hours before it was to go into effect. Then TT+P posts a wall of text regarding the ban when people have posted cars in blatant violation of said ban. Citizens are trying to help. We're saying "If this car gets towed, you can plow here". Instead, we get a form response about were we should park.
At least Doug H chimed in when someone was towed in error, and responded with a solution.
Other than that it seems as we get tested with more snow; our leaders fail and not only clearing the streets, but also in communicating in an effective manner.

During the recent election I discovered that people who used to live in a rental property I own, several of whom have not lived here for years, are still listed as registered voters in New Haven. With a little bit of imagination, it becomes clear that in this city, with such a transient population, it's likely that the statistics re: registered voters/# of such who vote in any given election, etc., will be really inaccurate, which is not a good situation. There must be a way for City Hall to clean up these records. It is important and necessary work, though I'm sure massively tedious; how do we get this done?

Ever since the city began charging $50 for bulk pickup, there has been a significant uptick in illegal dumping: furniture, tires, TVs, mattresses, etc. can be found on curb strips all over New Haven. The problem “seems” to have gotten even worse since residents no longer can schedule pickups via phone or online, but are required to go to Public Works and pay in person.
So could someone with an insider access to Public Works expenses provide us with a “before” and “after” breakdown?
Is the city actually saving money by charging for bulk pickups?
Or is the cost of picking up and disposing of illegal bulk piles throughout the city costing more?
Despite what such research ultimately finds, the significant decline in “quality of life” due to junk piles all over our neighborhoods is indisputable.

Numerous Quinnipiac students coming from Uptown lounge Thursday night college night....Seeing as I was wearing a Yale Shirt I became a target of drunken racial slurs and other remarks. Spoke with Quinnipiac officials on the green who said about 800 kids went to college night at Uptown estimated that about 3/4 are underage. If the bar is 21+ how are these kids getting in and coming out @#$% faced? These kids are a nuisance to the area Please enforce or involve liquor control Quinnipiac is getting out of hand in Downtown. Maybe try enforcing at Toads on Saturday as well another bar that has almost 2000 Slobcats occupying it on Saturday nights.
