    This structure has been reported to the City Of Milford several times and yet not one thing has been done to remedy the blight! It impacts every home owner on the street because this blight is decreasing the neighboring homes value. I wonder if the City is waiting for a contentious lawsuit before they do anything. Knock this thing-in-lieu-of-a-house down now!

  • Wheelers Farms Rd Milford Ct 06461 - Milford
    The entire property is covered in junk, tarps and garbage bags. There is a terrible odor coming from the home and property and we have seen rats on the property and they are coming onto the surrounding properties. The house is in bad shape and you can see junk piled high through the windows at the back of the house. This property has been a problem for more than 10 years and many complaints have been made, but still as of today The health department and city of Milford has done nothing to clean up this dump. The health departhment needs to finally resolve this serious matter and have this property cleaned up asap. We have been filed complaints with the health department and Mayor Ben Blake's office. Per the health inspector the septic system is the original system and it has never been uodated and is most likely a non working system and athe kitchen sink is illegally oiped out the back of the house, but they still have done nothing regarding these serious matters.

    The sidewalk in front of Mustang Sally's is constantly covered in pieces of litter and cigarette butts. The establishment does nothing to curtail this and seems to not tend to the sidewalk. They need to add a receptacle for cigarette butts and/or some sort of garbage disposal AND make an attempt to keep the sidewalk clean. It's no doubt their patrons that are littering. No other downtown Milford establishment has this issue.

    The property is covered in junk, tarps and garbage bags. There is a terrible odor coming from the property and Rats have been seen on the property. The Milford health department has been aware of this issue for more than 10 years and there has been an open blight case and numerous complaints over the years, but nothing has been done to clean up this property. per the milford health department the septic system has never been uodated and is most likely a non working system and the kitchen sink is illegally being piped out the back if the property and they are ignoring these issues. When we complain they walk around the property quickly and never open any of the bags, lift the tarps or inspect inside the home. They do not inspect the property monthly or stay on top of this matter and that is why the occupants have gotton away with this for so long. The city of Milford and the Milford health department need to take care of this matter immediately. Our neighborhood should not have to deal with this serious health issue and blight nightmare.

    The access-way to Cat's Island is overgrown and has become a fire hazard. The City used to take care of it, but that was when an employee of the City of Milford lived beside it, and "knew people." Emails have been sent to the Mayor's office, DPW Wastewater Division, the Sewer Commission (a sewer line runs there as well) and the Fire Department (as it is the only access for them to get to island. All have been ignored. Here is a Google Map with the area highlighted, as well as the lock combo: http://goo.gl/maps/8Svzh .

  • New Haven Ave Milford, CT - Milford
    This whole area suffers from some very ugly town space where there's a desperate need for landscaping. The islands on Old Gate coming to New Haven Ave, and the island on Pond Point coming into New Haven Ave are both completely neglected. It would not cost much for the town to put down some mulch and some low maintenance planters. It just looks completely blighted.

    The fenced in Dog park has several areas where small dogs can escape. The dog park fence is currently patched with rotting plywood and in some cases garbage cans are placed up against the fence to keep small dogs from escaping. Please Repair ASAP
