I hope the meeting goes well, but I too thought it was an odd use of the Emergency Operations system. Parking bans, snow emergencies, natural or human-made disasters all are what I expect.
It found a home!
I went to Devil's Gear and had them replace my quick release wheel and seat bolts with allen wrench-required bolts. I lock the frame only (lazy, I know) with a U lock. So far so good. I did lose an easily removed headlight, which I have since replaced with a theft-resistant replacement. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Great. Thank you.
FYI. ParkMobile fees range from $0.25 to $0.33 per parking session, depending on options you can choose. Details at http://www.cityofnewhaven.com/TrafficParking/parkmobile.asp
I think the Green's a wonderful shared space. People are generally respectful of one another, whether they be homeless or Yale profs, working folk or captains of industry. And I see cops on the Green a lot. In fact they have a distrct office on the Green. I just don't get the cop cars cruisin' on the Green.
Putting this to bed
Please clarify. The ban is on Nicoll Street and runs from ???? to Edwards Street?
I know there's a lot of long term thinking on this, but how about for the short term? For instance, how can the powers that be at least make sure that the underpass between the police station and the Knights of Columbus Museum is shoveled? It's been nearly impassible.
It's a lot of snow. Most narrow streets, like Nicoll, are about a lane and a half wide. People have been good about taking turns to allow each other to pass. It's slow, but passable. I think of it as convivial; you have to get along with other drivers (and bicyclists and pedestrians.) I do think that the people who leave their cars buried in the snow are a problem. They end up taking up two parking spaces because of the snow that piles up fore and aft around them. People should be reminded that there is a 72 hour limit to parking on-street and they are therefore required to move their cars every 3 days. After those reminders, car should be ticketed and towed as needed. Like consistently enforced street sweeping, people will get the message eventually.
Car moved. Issue resolved.
Thanks for fixing this issue!
JR - I don't think I can make it until 12:15, though maybe a bit earlier. I have some tools. Tell me what we need.
1 pm on Saturday is perfect! Let us know where.
We need to do this plaque then:
Anything organized happening this weekend?
