  • Sachem And Winchester - Dixwell
    With the canal-trail becoming more and more used, and the intersection here (Sachem at Canal, just past Winchester) being an important access-point to the trail, it is dangerous that this is a three-way intersection with STOP signs on only two out of the three directions of travel! It seems to me a no-brainer to make this a Stop sign for everyone.

  • 325 Mansfield St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Prospect Hill
    I walk up and down Mansfield St. at least twice a day, crossing Division Street and Munson/Hillside in the marked crosswalks. Even when I have begun crossing and am well into the middle of the street, cars blast through the crosswalks at 30 to 40 mph within 1-2 feet of me. Never once has a car stopped for me to cross at either intersection. Even when I was on crutches, no one cared. It is illegal for cars not to stop for pedestrians. If the police observed these crosswalks for an afternoon in unmarked cars, they could issue hundreds of tickets -- and perhaps the behavior of New Haven's drivers would finally change.

  • 298 W Hazel St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Newhallville
    I wonder how the Mayor and Police can justify constant gunfire coming from the Police Academy. I understand and am all for them refining thier skills, however they are between 2 schools, 1 being an elementry school and near close proximity to West Hazel, West Division, and Harding St. What is this saying to our kids, and the violence in this neighborhood?

  • Muson And Winchester New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Prospect Hill

    Tomorrow night at 5:30 PM there is a public hearing at City Hall to grant preliminary approval of a petition to include this property (new lot L or the old Winchester factory) in the Science Park Corporation Planned Development District.

    The reason for this petition is so that Higher One may keep and expand its 160 person work force here in New Haven by moving across the street from their current location at 25 Science Park to the planned facility at new lot L.

    If you are in favor of this petition please speak-up here and also please show up tomorrow night to show your support.

    Here's is a link to the traffic survey which I have made public through google docs: https://docs.google.com/fileview?id=1gdPWpGrFJqTisEJkft1eIaOL8QlYMbeHZZL2ewDxm7WWqRUadaj3tyWqLImA&hl=en&authkey=CJqx0LQL

    Here is the link to the petition from the Science Park Corp. : https://docs.google.com/fileview?id=12UgRvj9m1FfY2uGWBQ0yfFOpF5TvYWb2NPhZR1MzYgmIHiBBxTTSnPG0J3o8&hl=en&authkey=CIyJurgG

  • Cars go speeding up Mansfield Street at very unsafe speeds because it is just a long street, no stop signs or anything. Children are frequently riding bikes around as well, just seems like a terrible combination. Maybe adding stop signs or maybe even just speed bumps (or just those "rumble strips") to certain areas would help.

  • 782 Orchard St New Haven, CT - Dixwell
    ALL OVER the city Harp signs are on the curb strip and public property. This is PW job to remove and fine them. At the 782 Orchard and all along that strip and other strips there is a severe abuse of this. Those campaigns are suppose to be fined for every sign. Public Works needs to get on the ball and remove these signs now.

  • 200 Orange Street New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Dixwell
    I have seen the # of cars by parking all day in front of City Hall ( 200 Orange Street) by Goverment agencies increase to an unreasonable level this summer. ICE has 3-5 cars all day, every day, Treasurer has 3 cars all day and assorted other agencies vary from week to week. These are not hourly parkers. This is ALL DAY EVERY DAY. Don't these agencies have the underground parking below 157 Church St.?? It is appauling that taxpayers can't park near City Hall because of Goverment Agency Parking taking 10-15 of the 30 minute parking spots all day.

  • abused dog Archived
    17 Compton Street New Haven, CT - Dixwell
    A dog is being chained in the backyard of a illegal boarding house at 17 Compton Street and barks incessantly and is in distress. The owner abuses the dog, causing the dog to cry. The dog is sometimes brought into the house, but more often is chained in the backyard with no water and no food. Not only is this extremely hurtful to the dog, but it causes distress within the neighborhood. That dog must be taken away from the abusive owner.

  • 58 Mansfield Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    Yale construction worker parks here every morning using visitor tag for months (just got the new one!). People commuting to work are not visitors. The owner of the tag should be fined $200 for misuse of the tag, and the car should be ticketed, according to the city ordinances.

  • 134-154 Crescent St New Haven, CT - Beaver Hills
    Our ward was promised a traffic circle at the intersections of Crescent Stree and Munson where Glen and Winthrop also end. It is time to get that constructed as Crescent St. has become a speedway where a fatal accident could occur at any time. Also, there should be a bike route along Crescent Street from Goffee to the SCSU campus. A bike lane would be a perfect aditon after the traffic calming circle is completed.
