132 South Road Enfield, Connecticut - polytest
Has anything been done about this place yet. I was just looking at the delinquient tax and this place is on the hook for $19,243.62. I find it funny that the town still lets them get away with not mowing or taking care of the property and also not paying taxes. I notice they are an out of state owner in NY. Good to see Enfield is being taken advantage of while residents take care and follow the rules and pay their taxes these people get away with having an eyesore and a property value dropping plaza like this.

Baco's Pizza and Natalia's Alterations have several high output light fixtures on the exterior of their buildings. Currently, there are two utility poles at the front of each property where there are two (one on each pole) 1000 watt high pressure sodium flood lights that are the majority nuisance factors. These flood fixtures are on from dusk to dawn. In addition to the two luminaire flood lights mentioned previously, the facade to Baco's pizza has a minimum of eight unshielded, non-performance type of wall pack fixtures. Baco's buidling mounted lights seem to be on a timeclock and the fixtures switch off by 11:00 PM. Natalia's Alterations also has non-conforming illumination on the facade with a what looks to be a 250-400 high pressure sodium flood light on the back of her building/home. The exterior lights on Natalia's Alterations are on from at least dusk to dawn and sometimes 24 hours.
The ordinace that I've referenced:
7.10.6 Outdoor lighting.
All external illumination shall be directed or shielded in such a manner that the source (bulb, tube, etc.) of light will not be visible from any street or from any adjoining property. No light shall be directed outside the lot where it originates. All lighting shall be shielded or otherwise designed to provide down lighting so as to minimize night glare.

The issue was closed two weeks ago noting that a violation was found. Last year this happened and the property was only cleaned once over the year. It looks to be on the same path.
When will it be followed up on again? The grass has to be over 2 feet tall at this point and the plaza practically looks abandoned in the middle of a residential neighborhood.
It's disheartening to drive by this every single day.
11 Saint Thomas Rd Enfield, CT - polytest
there is an abnormal number of cars at this house on a regular basis (between 6-10 cars/trucks) and this doesn't look to be a single family but i thought this street was zoned only for single family residences. is this being rented to several college students? a tree in the front yard has also been cut to look like a person waving that is scary to young kids.
Intersection Of Sword Avenue & Connecticut Avenue Enfield, Connecticut - polytest
I have previously reported on the following issue for the past three years. Once again the summer is coming to an end and this problem has not been resolved. The sight line at the corner of Sword Avenue and Connecticut Avenue is not safe due to a high flower garden at the house on the corner of Sword and Connecticut Avenue. Also the vegetation around the Sword Avenue bridge is also a problem. The vegetation has been trimmed back once this year but has begun to grow back. As far as the wild flowers they are right up against the roadside curb. I would think that there must be a town right of way to keep a streets sight line visible without having to drive out into the street to see if you are clear to move on. This is a hazard for our neighborhood children, residents and autos. I am dismayed that my previous complaint on this exact same issue would be closed out without proper resolution. I also placed a phone call to Matt Coppler our town manager and left my concerns on his voicemail. This was approximately 5 days ago and I have not received a response of any kind.
In addition to the above issue and in the same area is the condition of both sides of the street where you round the corner on Connecticut Avenue to the intersection of Sword Avenue. There are trees growing on the road itself as well as severe overgrowth of vegetation onto both sides of Connecticut Avenue. It looks like a jungle.
I find it very sad that after three years this cannot be resolved. I also do not appreciate our town manager Matt Coppler's lack of response! I would hope our not so cheap property taxes could be utilized to eradicate this very simple issue. Once again thank you for your time and I look forward to a full and final resolution to these problems.
Frankies Plaza Enfield, CT - polytest
This plaza is a complete mess. The grass is never mowed. The parking lot is a mess full of potholes and debris. It is sad because this could be a nice shopping center if it was taken care of. It needs to be maintained as it is a complete eyesore for the whole town and it brings property value down.
Montclair Drive Enfield, CT - polytest
There is a fence that has been down for a couple months now separating Montclair Drive and the Agricultural field. I have seen wild animals lately, two days in a row I saw two large foxes running around VERY close. I'm very concerned about the children and the residents on Montclair drive comming into contact with these animals and it is very dangerous as they can attack. Is there anyway this fence or a better one can be fixed?
1-11 Till Street Enfield, Connecticut - polytest
When making a left turn out of till st onto Washington Rd, you can not see oncoming traffic to the right because of the hill. During the day when you cant see headlights is most dangerous. It would be very helpful to have a mirror on the telephone pole across from till to see oncoming traffic. I have witnessed many close calls including my own. In addition many young folks travel on their bikes at night with no lights and have come close to being hit many times.
