113-123 College Street New Haven, Connecticut
No lane markings where College St. crosses MLK Blvd -- cars regularly switch lanes without realizing it into bridge at 100 College St. leading to dangerous conditions.
Dotted lines indicating where lanes continue onto bridge would be helpful.
129 Saltonstall New Haven, Connecticut
Found this little guy out on his own, on Saltonstall off Blatchley. Fastened his yellow string to a fence there and gave him some water.
I think I've seen him and his owner walking in the neighborhood before, near John Martinez school.
Haven't got time to put up signs. Not sure if I should release him to find his own way home, or count on the owner to be out looking. Leaning toward releasing, but don't want him to get hurt in traffic...

There are probably about a hundred of these plastic signs in the middle of the road, indicating to traffic that the law says they must yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk. Now that's a real improvement from a few years ago, when they didn't exist. But #nhvisbetter and everything else... Why not improve on this design?
Stereomedia.Org would like to challenge MakeHaven to create a design that is an improvement to this. The terms of this assignment as as follows:
> It might incorporate the existing plastic items
> It might include electronics (sensors especially)
> It should be durable to withstand the elements
> It should be cheap to manufacture
> It must be seen as an improvement to the original design
In the event that the design is successful, there are tons of towns and municipalities of all shapes and sizes which might be interested in trying out this type of civic improvement in their downtown sidewalks. If the design succeeds and these organizations become interested in implementing this design, maybe it will keep #nhv on the map for cool inventions, and would be a great way to connect two great organizations (SeeClickFix and MakeHaven).
Good Luck! Nhv.Org will be reporting on the success of this project in high-definition 720p.
Edwards St At Foster St New Haven, Connecticut
There is a large shrub on the corner of Edwards and Foster (across the street from the clinic), which impedes drivers and cyclists from seeing oncoming traffic as they turn from Foster onto Edwards. The shrub should be removed for safety reasons, especially since this is a busy corner with the Clinic on one side.

2 Lincoln Street New Haven, Connecticut
The alley next to the refurbished theater appears to be a walkway, yet drivers continue to ignore the pedestrian look of the alley and drive down the middle of the brick path as if it is intended for autos. Please clarify, is this a pedestrian path or a road? If it is not intended for vehicles, please shut it off before we have someone hit an unsuspecting bicyclist or pedestrian. If it is intended for vehicles, please reconsider that before someone gets hit.
127 Burwell St New Haven, Connecticut
this pot hole has been a problem year after year for the past six years! it is due to the fact that water pools in that area because the curb in front of 127 burwell st is gone since 2000!!! i have made numerous attempts and contacted public works as well as the alderman al pallillo and been told the curb would be replaced and that the chief of public works would come meet me at the house , well 2014 and still nothing, the pot hole keeps opening and there have been numerous accidents because of people swerving to avoid it the last one was last monday when my neighbors car was hit badly at around 3am how much more will it take before you do something to fix the curb and stop this pot hole from reopening every three months i speak for myself and my neighbors when i tell you enough is enough!!!!!!
