City of New Haven -- will you please provide a status update and/or trimming schedule for these two trees. This is becoming quite urgent.
Ben - I know it's difficult to articulate but do you think they're too flippant? Would you prefer something more serious like England's CCTV signs or really just no sign at all?
Closing this to make way for more recent sightings/descriptions.
Personally the signs do not bother me in the least and I believe they *might* have a small deterrent effect; I'd need to research that first. Signs or not I definitely want to see MORE CCTV and in areas other than downtown. Streets are public, far too many crimes happen on them and we need ways to capture and possibly even prevent them. I recently moved from my violent, disgusting neighborhood because it just felt like no one was watching out for the mess that was just getting worse there. A police officer can only drive by so often but cameras are always recording, at least.
This is STILL outstanding; please explain why this was never fixed and what the new status is. Thank you.
Cecilia, this issue is for Cliff St, not Clifton St.
Closing; issue resolved. Thanks.
XYZ please call it in then, since it's concerning you so much. I used to live right here and it was always a road hazard whenever we got more than 6 inches of snow at a time because you couldn't see when trying to turn onto Lombard. I called NHPD exactly once and guess what? It's DPW's responsibility, not NHPD's, as it's snow causing the problem.
This is still outstanding and the City has never responded to numerous requests for an update. Please provide one ASAP, as these trees have never been cut back.
There's a well-advertized parking ban in place; is the right hand side of the road the odd side? If so that's why.
They are collecting 100% of the payment, and then they're turning around and paying for a service, so I don't think that's a valid argument. If I walk into City Hall and pay my taxes with a credit card, am I also charged the same fee?
DPW does read and respond to issues here, so hopefully the garbage will be removed soon. Thanks for reporting!
Karen, see this issue for the 34 Lynwood address; I added your comment to it.
Adding the following comment from issue # 1407074:
"There is a big couch on the sidewalk in front of 34 Lynwood Place in New Haven illegally dumped in October. I called several times police and finally on November 11, a police officer #204 came to issue a written report: Case # 14-059103. This has been 5 weeks ago but the couch is still there, now pieces of it falling off and making mess. I don't know anymore what to do. When I called the City in October, the person assured me that it will be removed soon. I just called the police several minutes ago and didn't get anywhere. How does the system work? "
I agree; it's a pretty shameful practice. There's no way it's cheaper for them to accept and manually process a paper check than to take in a cash wire payment. The City needs to get rid of this absurd fee that encourages inefficiencies in their processes.
KenCT, you are 100% correct. This issue was also opened to discuss this very problem: https://www.seeclickfix.com/issues/1268223 Good luck with getting the DPW to see the problem and address it, though!
Yes, I was also going to post about this; it's gotten worse! I think at this point it's some sort of sink hole, as they've patched it but the patch keeps falling in farther than before. It's really hazardous!
Electricity is now back on; thanks.
Parking meter is now working.
Be careful what you wish for. The mayor just might decide to add yet another position to the payroll for someone to keep the City's website updated :)
