Thanks! Thanked!Corner Of Oxford And Lenox Streets New Haven, CT
There has not been a street sign identifying Oxford Street at Lenox Street for over three years. I thought that the city would put one up after they finished construction, but it still isn't there and people routinely pass my street.
East Grand Ave New Haven, CT
A company that is offering to buy houses is hanging signs up and down East Grand Ave on the city street lamps. Is this allowed?

The speeding on Lenox st is getting out of control. The city should put up signs and speed bumps in order to control the amount of speeding cars driving on Lenox st. Lexington ave, after the car race accident, got speed bumps and the amount of speeding cars has slowed down. Also the speeding on quinnipiac ave has slowed down after speed bumps and signs were added to the street. I strongly feel that Lenox st is well over due for speed bumps and signs. I moved on Lenox st in 1999. With-in 3 days still getting settled in I almost got hit by a speeding car when my basketball rolled into the middle of Lenox st. I now have a 7 year old nephew and a 3 year old niece that live on Lenox st, I fear for their and everyone else's safty! Please vote to help!!
Clifton St/Russell St Intersection CT 06513, USA
There is constant speeding occurring on Clifton St (where the posted speed limit is 25 mph but the average speed is closer to 40+ mph). In addition, people are always blowing the stop signs on Russell St. Needless to say there is atleast one accident a year at this intersection and numerous near misses. Either a four-way stop sign or speed bumps are needed to slow down the traffic on Clifton St. This is also a high pedestrian traffic area due to both a city bus stop and school bus stops and it can be dangerous crossing the street due to the speeding vehicles.

"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?
