Triangle Park has not been mowed ArchivedIntersection Of Sea Street And South Water Street New Haven, CT - City Point
Triangle Park has not been mowed, the grass is a couple feet long in areas and this seems to have invited more dumping of garbage than usual--including a tire. The city used to keep up the maintenance of this park but since last fall, the grass does not get mowed as often.
South Water Street New Haven, CT - City Point
Residents of the City Point neighborhood have noticed an increase in drug dealing and other illegal activity in our neighborhood. At least 3 calls have been made to police regarding this activity which has always involved one specific car. An alert resident finally was able to get the license plate of this particular car and called it into police. The person who answered at dispatch asked what the block watch number for our neighborhood is. The caller did not know. The dispatcher said that without that number, she could not send an officer out. She did NOT send an officer out.
This is concerning to me--and should be concerning to every New Haven resident. Can someone from the police department please clarify for me that officers will not be sent out--even if the activity is IN PROGRESS-- unless the caller has a block watch number? ( I'd also like clarification as to whether block watch numbers are even used to track calls and allocate officers anymore. I had been told that they were not. In fact, when I have called the police before to report a car break in, the dispatcher would NOT take the block watch number.) I think its important that residents AND dispatchers are made clear on these guidelines.
South Water St And Sea Street New Haven, CT - City Point
There has been excessive drug dealing on Sea Street and South Water St, (often done behind the Sound School buildings, dumpsters, etc.) Many residents have observed this on various nights and have called police with car descriptions (and eventually a license plate number, see the SeeClixFix issue entitled "NHPD Dispatch Refuse to Dispatch Officers" for more on this).
On one night that an officer did respond, he told the resident that called it in that there is nothing he can do "unless the Sound School posts a 'No Trespassing' sign, since it is public property." I am told that the officer then left without getting out of his car.
While I find this assertion hard to believe, I'd like to request that the city or the school posts appropriate "No Trespassing" signs so that the residents who live here might receive a better police response.

99 Greenwich Ave New Haven, CT - City Point
99 Greenwich Ave has been producing some of the same problems as 76 Howard Ave: noise and disrupting neighbors, public urination, parked cars (with people hanging out inside) that block other people's driveways, dumping garbage out of the cars into the street, sidewalk, neighbors lawns, etc. Can something be done?!
76 Howard Ave New Haven, CT - City Point
Some people who live at 76 Howard Ave (or maybe visitors of people who live there?) have been dumping trash on the premises, on the street, AND on the neighbors' lawns (including used diapers and more), people have been urinating outside between the property and the neighboring properties and making noise and disrupting neighbors at all hours of the day and night. The situation is getting out of hand.
