646 Quinnipiac Avenue New Haven, ConnecticutGreat job getting the word out via text and phone calls, but at what time does street cleaning begin? Can I leave my car on Quinnipiac until I leave for work at 8:30?
No signs are posted in the area that I can find.
381 Lenox St New Haven, Connecticut
I see route 7 for street sweeping is a tag an two route this year.
No signed were posted on Lenox on either side mentioning a parking ban.
DPW - did the route get changed to a no tag / tow route? The website has area 7 on for tomorrow 5/15.
Now that I think of it, I saw no signs in most of area 7 for sweeping / parking ban.

Can one person from the police or city government explain to me why there is no enforcement of any traffic regulations? We continually have a speeding issue by bikes and cars. Speed limit is 25 mph. Our safety is ruined by reckless drivers hurtling down this straight stretch any sunny day, summer evening, or late night. You can't trust crosswalks then (ps - we need new signs - they always disappear in the winters) given there's no way the maniacs could stop in time hurtling past Grand.
Back when Vinny was heading up our community policing he said something about "we've got some radar guns coming I've requested for our local beat cops" but I've never seen anyone since then handing out a ticket.
Without enforcement, we don't have speed limits. Safety and quality of life is out of the window. Family neighborhood out the window.
So, I'd just like to see one answer from someone responsible for this issue to our community: why never any enforcement on Q-av? Why have I seen cops on harleys at spots downtown where running through crosswalks at 70 has to be impossible, but never in our neighborhood?

Voted!Lexington Ave New Haven, ConnecticutEven though I have opted into the City's emergency call list, I received no call to remind those of us on a tag & tow route that we are in danger of being towed tomorrow morning. And, once again, the posted signage is insufficient (a stick in the ground with a sign on it, tacked to a tree, and then nothing for at least 30 feet from that tree to the corner). Please, get the system to work more efficiently. As the City's Web site is keen to remind us, getting towed is costly, but the burden cannot be on residents alone to keep up with a wildly inconsistent schedule. Post signs more effectively and call those who have taken the time to opt in to that service!
First Avenue New Haven, Connecticutthere is no parking allowed on even numbered side of street. There are signs missing that say no parking, but people park on this side all the time. Please tag/tow these vehicles, it makes it dangerous to try to get out of driveway as the street has a slight hill that people speed up

"The smell will drive you crazy..."
Uretek, a polyurethane manufacturing factory that is surrounded by residential homes and schools, consistently produces noxious chemical smells - especially at night. Driving or walking by, the foul odor can be overwhelming, and even blocks away, the fumes invade. The potential "danger" of these emissions is a serious concern, compounded by the billowing black smoke recently seen billowing from the factory, as well as the company's disturbing history of air pollution.
“’The smell would drive you crazy,’ said Louis Lopez, a 44-year-old mechanic who has worked for Uretek since 1984.” In December 1986, The New York Times covered a controversial employee strike at Uretek Inc. Uretek workers walked off the job due to health and safety concerns, specifically regarding the solvent dimethylformamide, or DMF, which is used at the plant. They claimed that fumes sickened half of the 66 workers at the plant. Later, testing by Yale confirmed the damage: 36 of the tested employees had ''significant liver-function abnormalities,'' and ten were diagnosed with toxic hepatitis, findings that, according to the doctor, were ''overwhelmingly'' linked to DMF*
The workers’ health problems in 1986 were “not the first time that Uretek has been accused of wrongdoing,” according to the Times article. In 1984, the Uretek vice president John Andrews was convicted on felony charges of illegally storing and disposing of hazardous waste – making it “the first time a corporation in Connecticut had been convicted of such a criminal offense in a trial.”
The article also noted that Uretek has been cited by the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection on air pollution.
Although this was many years ago, Uretek's emissions and its potential impact on the environment and people remain a very significant concern.
The DEP was notified a few years back (when the odors seemed particularly strong and noxious even blocks away). Despite Uretek’s pollution history, DEP’s response seemed disinterested. As far as we know, no air quality testing was conducted, nor any follow-up.
A health issue as serious and dangerous as this requires more than discussions or assurances from factory management. It would seem logical and imperative that thorough air quality testing be conducted (especially after hours/at night when the odors are often strongest) and that the results be made publicly available.
Does DEP receive notification of SeeClickFix concerns?
