Sachem And Winchester New Haven, CT
I had a real scare this morning with a Yale officer who came FLYING off a sidewalk from the YPD station up Sachem at a minimum of 25 mph on a motorized 3 wheel pedi-mobile(?) without even looking or slowing down and with no regard for his or anyone elses safety. I know Police can do whatever they want and there are circumstances that warrant these actions, but seeing him further up the road moments later, this did not appear to be an emergency. Don't those things come with a horn/lights/ or warning system for drivers who can only see 20 feet in both directions. If I wasn't such an observant driver he would have been under my vehicle.

Got the following phone call and text from the city's EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTER from the major exhorting me to sign up for health insurance. While laudable, this is hardly an emergency and certainly not a reason to call me in the middle of the day on my cellphone.
Please use the EOC system for genuine emergencies. If you need to communicate non-emergencies, please set up a non-emergency system that we can sign up for separately.
Abuse of the EOC is likely to result in people dropping EOC reception, which will impede the ability of the city to communicate during genuine emergencies.
Hi, this is Mayor Toni Harp, and I want to provide you with some important information about signing up for health insurance.
There are free health insurance enrollment events every week in the City of New Haven where you will be able to meet one-on-one with trained and certified individuals who can answer questions and enroll you and your family in health care coverage.
The Access Health CT open enrollment period officially closes on March 31st. After March 31st, you will be eligible to apply for health insurance through Access Health CT only if you have changes in your personal circumstances or if you qualify for Husky.
Please visit the City of New Haven’s website at www.cityofnewhaven.com or call the New Haven Health Department at 203-946-6999 for more information, and to find the locations of these enrollment events. I encourage all residents to take advantage of this opportunity.

The alleyway under the Foundry Building is always filthy (and particularly bad today), with garbage and cigarette butts. There's a new trash bin that is really dirty. Not a public area? Can the City encourage or require the landlords to keep it clean?

Three or four parking spaces on High Street immediately south of Elm Street are continuously occupied by the cars of federal government employees who work at the Yale post office. They place "U.S. Postal Service - Official Business" placards on the dashboards of their personal vehicles and never put money in the parking meters. The taxpayers of New Haven are furnishing free parking for these federal employees who should be paying for their parking just as all other workers in the downtown area must pay. Apparently, the New Haven parking authorities have readily accepted this practice, since none of the cars are ever ticketed, even though the parking meters always indicate "expired."

65 Bristol Street New Haven, Connecticut
Neighbors report that the residents of 65 Bristol Street keep their trash toters at the curbside all week long. They are not brought back on to the property after weekly trash and recycling collection. Please send someone to this location to investigate.

The parking meter in the middle of the block here---it's roughly halfway down the block right by the driveway/curb cut for the New Haven Water company building---is broken. It has a coin jammed into it so you can't put in new coins.

UI has recently installed new high intensity lamps on Temple, presumably for safety of Yale students. New light on pole 26 shines in the bedroom windows of residents. Light could be redirected to light the sidewalk below rather than the building frontages across the street.

Last night all of the nearby racks, street signs and parking meters were being used for bike parking, causing spillover onto some inappropriate places (see photo). More bike parking would be appreciated. One possibility is to convert one parking space to a bike corral.
