220 S Frontage Rd New Haven, CT - Yale University Campus
Every Wednesday, I go to the train station a bit before 12noon. When I drive on SOUTH FRONTAGE road, between York and College Street, as I pass the Child Study Center, I come upon many police cars parked ON SOUTH FRONTAGE, both sides of the street. Obviously, they have a regular meeting at the Child Study Center, which is laudable, but it is absolutely an obstacle course as 4 lanes are narrowed to 2 bc of the illegal cops' parking and it is dangerous. I have worked at the medical campus for over 20 years, doing laudable things too and have to come and go multiple times in a day and I know there is little parking. As a student with no money, I used to park many blocks away in the Hill and walk through the streets littered with crack and heroin bags. My car was regularly broken into, the radio ripped from the dash until I stopped replacing it, etc. How I would have loved to just park on SOUTH FRONTAGE Road! I now pay a significant amount to buy a parking space in a Yale-owned garage. Sometimes that means a 10-15 min walk each way from my garage to my meeting place, just for a one hour meeting. I can not just park my car on SOUTH FRONTAGE Road bc I do not want to walk a long distance. It is dangerous to park on SOUTH FRONTAGE, which is why neither my fellow Yale employees nor I can park there. Officers, even if it is a one hour meeting and you are on the job, please find LEGAL and SAFE parking places somewhere. The Air rights garage is directly across from the Child Study Center - this would give officers easy access to their vehicles in case of emergency (the ground level is largely vacant of cars).

The entirety of Howard Ave below Frontage Road on the way through the Hill is incredibly unsafe for cyclists. Motorists speed, fail to stop at red lights, throw trash onto the road. The entire right lane is made of potholes! This whole lane should be repaved.
And what of these rumors that the city has promised to create a bike lane on Howard Ave? Many cyclists as well as drivers use this road on their daily commute, and yet it looks like it hasn't been repaired in many long years.
Please fix the potholes! Please consider striping a bike lane! Please find ways to get motorists to slow down! Please clean up the heavily littered road (I've seen hypodermic needles lying in the gutter)!

There is always cars parked in front of my home blocking my driveway. I live in front of Hill Health Clinick you would think they have enough parking space for their patients and workers. But every day different cars are parked not only blocking my driveway but parked in front all day littering. I called the police wich ticketed two cars today I don't understand why thre isent a sign posted in front of my home explaining blocked driveways!

Last night Mr. Jensen participated in a Mobility Study to look at the way traffic issues (automobile, pedestrian, bicycle, public transportation, parking) that affect the Hill Neighborhood/Downtown connection. This morning on my way to work, Mr. Jensen was outside the Library sweeping and picking up trash around the exterior perimeter of the library. Thank you Mr. Jensen for caring! We appreciate that being the 'librarian' is not just a job for you. Thank you.
