Issue Closed

Both lights #1728 & #1729 have been fixed as of last night; thanks so much!

Agree the response from Parks needs to be much more timely. However your map marker indicates the Lewis St park, which is why I originally asked for clarification. Thanks for clarifying.

Please stop; multiple posts about the same issue are just wasting the administrators' time and you will get shut down anyway. One post per issue is enough.

I would start with LCI and see if they can point you in the right direction on this. New Haven does have ordinances about fence height and possibly about fence location as well. Hopefully there's also something in the ordinances that addresses leaving behind those high post sections; not sure what that's about. Best of luck to you!

TT&P can we please have some acknowledgement that this is being worked on? Is there a different department considered responsible? Thanks.

I've had decent success getting responses from TT&P, especially for repeat violations. I recommend posting about the illegal parking every time it happens, giving the date and time of day. TT&P have been responsive on other posts I've seen.

This was picked up some time on Friday, 9/18; thank you.

The dresser with drawers is STILL sitting by the sidewalk. Why hasn't this been picked up by now??

With all due respect while that *might* have been true at some point, this was one man sitting in a pickup truck and blocking lanes of traffic. There literally was nothing else going on. And his rude response is even more concerning.

Dresser was still there this morning; thanks.


These have been picked up; please close issue. Thanks!

Why is there no hot water or a bathroom on the 3rd floor? It's listed as a legal 3-family. Is the landlord aware of the tenant's living situation?


Items were picked up; thanks DPW. Will you please close the issue?

Closing this old issue. Property has been sold & is under construction.


Yes I'm aware of that; thanks. But considering the high taxes I already pay, an additional $50 (plus their onerous scheduling requirements) is just absurd. I've no sympathy for all the mess they're having to pick up lately. They need to fix this mess.

See pic as of yesterday, 8/14:


NH Register article about this --
NEW HAVEN >> City firefighters called for state environmental officials to respond after several chemical drums were discovered near Springside Avenue early Thursday afternoon but they are not believed to be dangerous.

Fire crews found eight 55-gallon drums in the 100 block of Springside Avenue, south of Common Ground High School, around 12:15 p.m. after someone called to report them.

Most of the drums were empty but one was found to contain what appears to be waste oil, Fire Department Operations Chief Matthew Marcarelli said in a phone interview later Thursday.

Some of the drums were labeled as containing “liquid alkaline detergent” but Marcarelli said he believes the drums had been repurposed and didn’t contain that material Thursday.

Police reportedly shut down Springside at Wintergreen Avenue while firefighters checked the drums. Several New Haven fire units responded to the scene, including a hazmat crew, but firefighters were told to stay away from the drums after the liquid was found. The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection was asked to respond to the scene.

Marcarelli said the area has since reopened and there is no danger to the public. He said there were no injuries and it did not appear any of the liquid in the drum had gotten out.

He said the barrels were most likely there as a result of careless dumping.
