Thank you, LCI; appreciate the update!
I think the personal attacks are a a bit unwarranted, per SCF guidelines, but okay. Yes street gangs are involved in everything you mentioned, but it doesn't make the reverse true, that EVERY drug deal or prostitution deal is tied to a street gang; that's simply not the case. Some are and some aren't. The little everyday stuff that goes on in Fair Haven, like on Poplar St, is frequently 1-2 people seeking out drugs and they are not tied to gangs. I know; I live here, I know many of the prostitutes and way too many of the small time drug dealers. Heck, I've had some of them as tenants every now and then (quite by accident). They aren't tied to gangs; they're involved solely in a personal enterprise. Do street gangs exist? Sure they do; no one's arguing with you on that. But the small time stuff that we see in Fair Haven is frequently not related to any gang. In fact, making the assumption that EVERY drug deal and EVERY prostitute is tied to a gang is actually doing a disservice to the REAL gang related work that the police and undercover agents are working so diligently on.
Anonymous: can you provide dates & descriptions of the people involved? If there are ever cars with license plates, that would be great. I'll keep an eye out as well. Thanks for this!
(And BJG, the majority of activity like this is not tied to street gangs at all, based on my personal experience. It's just one or two people here and there, selling drugs and/or sex. Prostitutes want drugs and sell their services to get it; drug dealers want money and sell drugs to get it.)
Definitely let it go--please!
You can't go back and retroactively fine, no matter how attractive that might be! :) There's a legal process involved, of formal notices, hearings, etc, and then the daily fine accumulation occurs after that.
Thank you, Sgt. Anastasio! Such a shame that people won't step from behind their internet anonymity and have a kind word with their neighbors. Thanks for not being one of them!
Are more details available about this--the proposed location, the company involved, any public hearings scheduled (if applicable), etc? Thanks.
Thanks for volunteering and picking up the litter, Dave!!
I see a photo of a man, in public, smoking. That's not a crime and this is not a quality of life issue. Since no one knows what he is smoking, it's all just ridiculous speculation and it's cluttering up SCF. I know people who roll their own cigarettes--tobacco!--and smoke the same way, so this is really an absurd conversation to be having. Urinating in public and smoking in public are definitely not in the same category, sorry.
Tires have been picked up; please close the issue. Thank you!!
Closing this; taking voyeuristic pictures of someone smoking is not what SeeClickFix is about. Thanks.
It is definitely illegal, as bicycles are considered vehicles by the State of CT. In addition, bicycling on the sidewalk is actually more dangerous than bicycling in the street with other vehicular traffic.
Right, that's what I posted; the only recent building permit is for a new roof, hence no permit for the alleged construction work on the garage.
Correction: Permit # B-13-362 was issued on 4/15/2013, not 2003. Sorry about that!
The list of items that can now be recycled is quite extensive and is available here: http://www.cityofnewhaven.com/Sustainability/PDFs/Recycling%20V3.pdf
My experience with many residents in Fair Haven (but not all) is that they do not recycle everything that can be recycled, and thus fill up their trash bin far too soon. Mixed paper is a big one; so many more paper items can be recycled than people realize.
This has now been picked up. Thank you!
I believe you may have to create a login first. Go to cityofnewhaven.com and click on "Online Services." Under Interactive Services, the first link takes you to the building permits site. You can create a login, sign in and then click on "Look-up Permits," where you can search by permit number or by address. The direct URL is https://www.viewmypermitct.org/preloginviews/loginpage.aspx?tid=10
FYI, an online search of both 20 Lamberton & 300 Hallock shows only one recent building permit, on 4/15/2003 (#B-13-362), and that's for a new roof on a single family. There are a couple of permits for dumpsters, but that's it.
I've never heard of this excuse from LCI before. Believe me, non-tenants have gotten serious action out of LCI before for related issues, so they definitely shouldn't be throwing this 'you're not a tenant' excuse out there. LCI, where are you? Please re-educate your call handlers.
Okay, great; thanks, DPW!
