  • 151 Starr St New Haven, Connecticut - Newhallville

    This is to address the terrible job the LCI Dept is doing in maintaining one of their properties. (135-143 Starr St New Haven CT 06511) It is on a vacant lot and its overgrowth is becoming a ongoing problem. This is the second time i am addressing this problem. I gave photos on the 31st of July and it has gone nowhere. I have talked to workers hired by LCI on different occasions about this and they said that the would talk to their boss about it.

    It is a dangerous situation that makes people walk in the street to get around this pitiful situation. A Wheelchair Handicapped person has to get in the street and travel 300 + feet to avoid this. This is a really bad situation with a wheelchair in the street at night with already bad lighting and cars flying by . If someone gets injured because of the neglect of LCI in their maintanence of properties that they own this could get very very expensive.

    The obstruction is about 300 + feet from the closest driveway near Newhall St to the obstruction.

    How is it with a sub station 2 doors down from the Liquor Store, Customers can loiter and drink all day without being ticketed or at least told to keep moving? Although there's a City provided Trashbin Very few use it, just throw bottles and cans EVERYWHERE. THIS IS HOW BLIGHT BEGINS AND DESTROYS NEIGHBORHOODS.

    the backyard has been cluttered with junk for over a year. This is not my first complaint. It's unsightly as well as dangerous.

    There is a tree that is on a vacant, city owned lot directly next to my house. The limbs and branches all lean into the roof of my house, and I am afraid that it would cause extensive damage in the event of a bad storm. I had requested for this to be addressed, but to no avail.

    In the first block of Hazel Street there are a lot elderly and disabled residents who cannot get out because the street has not been plowed since the last storm (but the substation has been plowed)
