This administration takes way too long to post the minutes from the monthly meetings. Here we are at the end of April and we still do not have the minutes posted from this month's Aldermen's meeting which takes place on the 2nd Tuesday of every month. In addition, the links to the minutes that do exist should be made easier to read/clarified.
12 Vine St Ansonia, Connecticut
Look at the roof on the east side of the home, it's caving in and tons of water have to be pouring in when it rains. As you go along Jewett St where it meets Vine look over and take a good look at the roof. Looks like it's caving in.

Per our personal Email also sent to Moustapha Diakate for Ansonia’s needed repair:
Since this linked article tells the story of a broken city in need of desperate repair:
we cannot help to notice within the same neighborhood of the former Olsen Drive apartments, factories along North Main and East Main Streets in Ansonia can also be redeveloped and purchased by the (HUD) Federal Government we were told.
Moustapha Diakate of Washington Management, owner of these troubled buildings, would you be willing to listen to your brothers and sisters to expand a viable HUD campus within this sector of Ansonia to repair and fill the vacant & blighted property conditions?

Pershing Drive Olson Street, Crescent Street, Ansonia, CT
The intersection/light from the opposing Cresent Street and drivers who want to turn left onto Pershing Drive is a NIGHTMARE in the morning. I welcomed the opportunity to be able to drive over the Maple Street Bridge upon it's recent reopening; and on the first week/drive into work; it was very nice; traffic was lighter (due to holiday's, etc) however; now that most people know the bridge has reopened people are preferring to go over and around onto Olson Dr to Pershing as it's a MUCH quicker route than going over Bridge Street, but not during rush hour nor school pick-up/drop off times. I got stuck at that light along with a LINE of cars this morning trying to get to work (4) FOUR times until I was able to get through the light as bus after bus and car; etc kept turning right onto Pershing and/or straight to Olson Dr. PLEASE install a turn signal to allow traffic to remain flowing and allow both sides to make their turns safely, as I've seen a few people go through the light (when green) but cut-off opposing traffic/school buses as they just don't want to wait.... and honestly right/wrong I don't 100% blame them! PLEASE HELP!!

Myself and friends have been driven nuts but this traffic signal on Main Street which appears to exist for no good reason. It's at the driveway exit of Bank of America and turns red every minute or two stopping Main Street traffic.
I could perhaps understand if this light ONLY turned red when someone was trying to exit the bank because making a left hand turn down Main Street there could be dangerous without being given right of way. However, this light has no sensor on it and simply stops Main Street all day and night and 90% of the time no one is waiting to exit the bank.
It is not needed for the small section of road next to Spector Furniture across from the bank because that is a one-way (Tremont?) and you can very easily make a left turn when heading towards Big Y without need for any signal like at so many intersections.
Has anyone looked into this? One would think city employees who have had to stop at this light for no reason or years before the bank is even open would inquire.
Leave the light, but at least install a sensor so it only goes red if someone needs to safely exit the bank parking lot. That would improve traffic flow in this area greatly.

I think I saw something posted about this building many months ago. Yesterday, after a long time since I had been to downtown Ansonia, I passed it and actually had to pull over I couldn't believe my eyes.
I consider this the "old Ansonia diner building", YEARS ago there was a fire and the building sat burned out and boarded up forever. It was a eyesore. Then, I saw someone ask about it here. I was so relieved.
Now, it seems someone THINKS they have improved the structure, but have only made it worse. All the siding (much of which seemed to be hiding fire damage) has been torn off, it looks like the interior has been gutted and the plywood "windows" have been replaced by new real ones.
(That is what the owner poured money into? New windows for a burned out building?!)
Now we have a sign that says "New Space Available". NEW?! Don't they mean "Old Charred Space Available"?! Who would lease space in a clearly burned out building that has no siding and marks from a fire all over it's exterior?
I can't believe City officials don't consider this blight. As you enter Ansonia THIS burned out building is the first thing you spot on the side of the road.
Who is going to lease this space? What business owner would want to be seen here? Can't the city do anything to either get this building torn down or get the owner to complete the repairs if he/she is so certain new tenants can be attracted. What is there now is horrid!

Most folks don't stop at the stop signs and drive on this short road like it's a raceway! I've complained to police nothing happens. Put a speed trap in or better yet, close the road where it meets Pulaski Hi-way.
