  • 972 State St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Bishop-Hine

    JP Demspeys is attracting motorcycles to the neighborhood that make it unliveable. This needs to stop and we need the police's help. There are three bike parked out front right now and I am waiting for an officer but I have not had luck w the police's help in the past.

    We need traffic stops for decibel meters on State Street.

  • Humphrey St New Haven, CT - SOHU

    We have a beautiful tree canopy on Upper State Street but unfortunately it makes the busy restaurant corridor very dark at night.

    It would be really excellent to have a low level street lighting like other commercial districts in the City.

    Abandon dog tied up behind ACES on Audubon Street. Part pit bull part boxer. Animal Control does not answer the phone and the police said to call animal Control. Mailbox of Animal Control officer filled so I called my Alderman to see if he could help. Went looking for police officer on Whitney, none to be found.

  • Humphrey Street Between State And Orange. - SOHU

    Loud motorcycles frequently speed down Humphrey Street, breaking both the speed limits and the municipal noise ordinance. Some are coming from the bars on State Street/Humphrey Street. Others are getting off I-91 and speed down Humphrey on their way downtown.

  • 210 Willow St New Haven, CT 06511 - East Rock

    Formerly a dry cleaning business, the building is in extremely unsafe condition: leaking roof, broken windows, rotting floor, rear door unsecured. There is old dry cleaning equipment, probably dry cleaning chemical contamination and waste, asbestos from a rusting boiler, and the building's foundation is rotten and open to the elements creating a rodent problem and allowing rainwater to enter and possibly contaminate groundwater and the surrounding soil with pollutants.

  • Bradley At State New Haven, CT - Downtown

    Help us make the Bradley/State Intersection safe!

    In April 2012 we submitted a New Haven Complete Streets project request to improve the safety of motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists at the intersection of Bradley and State (attached).

    This application requested bump-outs to improve visibility on State Street at Bradley Street -- or a traffic light.

    The Engineering Department of the City replied that our problem would be assessed by “ . . . verification of speeds and volumes on the road, traffic accident data and a physical review of the road and its context within the neighborhood.”

    This measure alone will not illustrate how difficult and dangerous it is to exit Bradley. We need you to document your experiences with this intersection in the comments below.

    Thank you for supporting the application, and safer streets for all.

  • 103 Bishop St New Haven, CT 06511 - Bishop-Hine

    I often see, or hear, the big blue and white Yale school bus flying up Bishop Street with the pedal to the medal. The bus screams by, both in speed and sound, revving its engine flying up to Orange Street as if it was heading to YNHH with someone in labor. If a child or person who'd been drinking too much happened to wander into the road, ferget it! Two points for that driver. I tried to tell a cop who was parked on Bishop when I got home tonight, but no one was in the cruiser at the time. I think NHPD oughta park themselves with a speed detector and ticket whoever's racing up and down our streets.

  • Eld St New Haven, CT 06511 - SOHU

    City Workers continue their longstanding efforts to destroy the trees in the East Rock neighborhood. Defying repeated complaints, city workers continue to regularly staple parking signs to trees, as if they were irrelevant to the quality of life (not to mention health) of New Haven residents. (Take a stroll down Eld and count the staples in each tree!!!) These workers had a party before the New Haven marathan, stapling up Grove as well. Trying to get the attention of public works on this issue is about as effective as writing postcards to the Bush adminstration.

  • Orange St And Bishop St Intersection New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Bishop-Hine

    It's very hard to see whether or not cars are coming up and down Orange St when trying to cross from one side of Bishop to the other. Is there potential to have a traffic light put here?
