In my exploration of the surrounding area I found a nice but neglected right of way from John Murphy Drive to the Mill River. At the end there is a path that runs behind your building and has some nice park benches. I am interested in we can spruce up this right of way and river path. In particular I think it could be quite nice to figure out a way to make it a loop so that people could walk it on lunch breaks. In the overgrown right of way I wonder what sort of landscaping could improve the look and ease of maintaining. There are some aspects of it that seem suitable to a small garden running alongside the trail.

I have frequently seen women in front of this store who appear to be prostitutes/drug addicts. Can the police please look into this?

I don't know where this issue belongs. We have a beautiful riverfront with a lot of potential but the desolate space by Grand Vin is depressing. I'm not sure who owns the land but keeping it empty will not make them money or help the community. For all the time that space has been abandoned (since Bare Beans left and the flower shop burned down and who knows what's going on with Martin's) the developer could have offered free rent to small businesses and allowed them to get started and establish themselves. They would have made the same $0 they've made over the last year, but could've helped the community.
I believe we have enough families who would go there every day if there was a small Nicas-like market, a nice restaurant on the water and some kind of outside seating where we could sit by the water and have lunch, coffee, etc. Build a parking lot, plant some trees and put some tables outside, like Nica's. You don't need a lot to make that a nice space- the river and marina view is enough.
We desperately need a coffee shop that opens early in the morning, before 9am; a good small market; and a convenience store. The entire neighborhood would shop there IF there was adequate parking and traffic signs.
PLEASE do something with that area. Not developing this property and allowing it to remain unoccupied, or occupied by unappealing businesses (sorry, Ziggy) is so detrimental to our neighborhood.
I hope Grand Vin never leaves. It's the only decent place there.

Happens every day, Mr. Travers. Traffic lights in all directions turn red when the bridge swings open.
Cars, trucks, and yes, CT busses, regularly swing out of line, drive down LEFT lanes, and turn left -- or right! -- in front of other vehicles. Drivers crowd onto the bridge's onramp and block traffic to beat others in crossing the bridge when it reopens. Lots of horns, lots of yelling, lots of anger, lots of everything that happens when traffic control doesn't make sense and traffic enforcement is absent.
Can you do something about this, please? Can we get enforcement here to direct traffic in the short term -- while your office figures out a better way to control the lights?

They are slowly creeping back up. *This* red and white bike (if not the very one, one very similar to it with similar logo) out today Sat. 7/13/13 in Fair Haven. 4PM on. Small rider (5',6"); could not tell what he looks like because was wearing full mask in 80+ degree weather.
Dirt bike followed by entourage including black scooter with two riders, and small "moped" style beige scooter with one rider.
