Wooster Sq New Haven, CT - Wooster Square
Yet another 8 cars (at least) in the Wooster Square area have been broken into with crow bars early in the morning of 11/12/10. NHPD were on scene as at least 2 perpetrators were witnessed fleeing the area. The Wooster Square area has been under siege by this rash of car break-ins over the past several months. Enhanced NHPD patrols are needed between 12a and 5a to catch the thieves/vandals in the act. Countless vehicles have been hit in the past 3 weeks, despite no visible items or other items of value in the cars.

Whenever it rains, a puddle forms in the roadway on Elm Street at the the southwest corner with High Street (right in the crosswalk). I believe the puddle results from a depression in the roadway that prevents the water from draining into the nearby storm drains. The puddle is large and right near where people must stand while waiting to cross the street. When drivers (especially buses, who have little room to maneuver) drive right through the puddle, they send up a wall of mucky water that splashes all over pedestrians.
DPW, as soon as the weather dries out, could you please layer on a few more inches of asphalt here to prevent this puddle from developing in the future? Thanks!

If you are the owner of this vehicle your car was just broken into. I called the Nhpd and pursued the individual but the it took too long for non emergency to pick up and I was told not to follow by the time they got on the phone. The man was last seen headed up crown towards orange carrying a duffle bag. Sorry that I could not have helped to catch him,
709 Townsend Ave New Haven, CT - East Shore
Reckless, noisy clowns on Quads/ATV's (along with snowmobile's in the winter) have also been riding illegally, plaguing the East Shore section of New Haven for years. Blasting up & down Townsend Ave, tearing up Black Rock Fort area etc.
Advance warning for NHPD; they go crazy, blaring past the Townsend mansion just about EVERY evening after a snow storm, zig zagging & sliding across the centerline towards oncoming traffic, dangerously passing and cutting off cars etc.
We want these uninsured deadly missiles stopped!
Church And Elm New Haven, CT - Town_Green
9:50 AM Friday. Car heading southeast on Elm blows right through red light. Almost knocks me over in crosswalk. Police SUV (665-NH) does nothing when I motion that the car is coming. Traffic stopped. Office had a clear shot at the offender...great job...only tells us that tickets are written during blitzes.

Many cities are beginning to convert the rooftops of their municipal buildings into "green roofs" to reduce energy use, save money, reduce storm water run-off, improve air quality, provide a tranquil refuge for residents, and much more.
Milwaukee has begun work on the roof of it's public library:
Harrison St New Haven, CT - Westville
The parking lane of Harrison St between whalley and fountain is normally used as parking for the Mitchell library, the doctor's office, the post office, the nursery school and some houses/apartments. After the storm, there was no attempt to plow the parking lane so it is full of snow from the curb to 4 ft into the street in most places. No safe street parking is available. This is hazardous and frustrating to many.

I come from further North originally and our snow removal plan works wonderfully. So here is how "back home" does it.
Day of suspected storm:
1) Open the parking lots of Churches, public schools and city parking lots for free parking all nite until 7am (M-F) or 8am (Sa/Su). If not removed, cars get towed with fines due the city - (money maker!) Free bus shuttles available.
2a) Cars park on "no parking" side of street or just one side on a street with parking open on both sides. Back home we have these streets marked with a Blue Square on the signs.
2b) Cars can not park on "parking this side only" or one side of street the day of the storm. This is the parking ban. This side of the street would be marked with a Yellow Square back home. Again, cars towed when in the way (money maker for the city!)
Plows do their job on the day of the storm on the empty side. The following day after the storm, cars are allowed to park on the other side of the street so this side can now get cleaned.
Its so simple and its proven to work!
Hervey Street At Kneeland New Haven, CT - East Shore
This area has not been plowed, since BEFORE THE STORM. Then nothing for 2 DAYS. This is unacceptable. It stopped snowing Saturday around 8am and it is Sunday 1pm and we are still snowed in with no sign of street plows. My kids need to go to school tomorrow, how long is this going to take???
