Howard St. New Haven, CT
Howard Street and Summit Street were never plowed or sanded from the last storm. Both hills are now packed with snow and ice (no sand or salt dropped). A young female neighbor had to walk up Howard Street yesterday because her school bus couldn't get up the hill. In addition, a vehicle got stuck sideways and had to be towed. Now that the city is aware of the issue, they can be held liable when someone gets hurt or killed. I'm curious if the Mayor is aware of these laws suits waiting to happen??

This house, along with 193 Lexington Avenue are constantly involved in dealing/doing drugs, noise violations, domestic abuse, fights, racing, and most recently (September 2010) someone set a car on fire in the driveway of 193 Lexington. On 10/02/10, there was a shooting in the driveway of 193 Lexington Ave. involving the son of a resident of 193 Lexington and a resident of 188 Lexington. The resident of 188 Lexington was injured in the shooting. Both individuals took off after the shooting but were apprehended by police officers. 193 Lexington became a crime scene and the two men were questioned on the scene and downtown. They were released that same day and continue to race, fight, yell and do/deal drugs.
Summit Street/Howard Street New Haven, Connecticut
Summit Street and Howard Street was not plowed as of 9pm. Although the storm left a small amount of snow, it`s become packed. Both streets have hills which made it difficult to get up. Howard Street is steep and there wasn`t even sand dropped. I did notice, the city had no problem plowing Lighthouse Park. Come on New Haven...get your priorities together. You picked a beach in the middle of the winter over residence getting home without a struggle. Two storms ago you replied that plows work into the night. This storm ended in the early morning and it`s 9pm now,don`t think your coming. Great job guys!

Saturdays and sometimes on Friday afternoons several of the employees from the Air Bag material factory on Lenox st, sit outside and drink. Ironic they make materials that are suppose to save lives but before they drive home they sit for several ours after about 3pm and drink.

"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?
