370 Elm Street West Haven, CT - West Haven
I think it is long overdue to unite our fire departments. There is not a reason in the world to have 3 fire districts in a city as small as ours. It's time for a new vote for this and we all, as West Havener's, have to unite to consolidate the departments. Just think, this might save taxpayer's money.

Students and faculty can not bike from central campus to West Campus. This is a serious oversight on the part of Yale, and one that potentially impacts the entire regional economy by forcing more people to drive. A route should have been created prior to the opening of the new campus as a research facility.

On 07/28/10 an 18 year old camp counselor at the West Haven Painter Park Camp struck my niece in the hand for a punishment. No DCF Report # 136 was filed under the law of mandated reporting, no police report was made, and one of the directors of the camp said: "There was two sides of the story". My niece has Rheumatoid Arthritis and her hand has been twitching for days. The camp has yet to report this felony assault on a minor by an 18 year old adult and has swept the whole affair under the rug.

127 Leete Street West Haven, CT - West Haven
I see there is already so many concerned neighbors addressing this issue, however I feel I should also express my frustration with this situation and the way it is completely being ignored by the west Haven Police department as well as all the other local organizations. At any given moment you can go by this home and see the comings and goings of many shady characters. I think its time for all the reports to the police and complaints to be addressed. Please take notice and take care of this on going problem. Lets not wait until there is an assault or something truly bad happens to one of the neighborhood children. Everyone talks about setting the example for our children...lets hope the heads of our community take that step and show they care about the people in their city.
Beach West Haven, CT 06516, USA - West Haven
We visited West Walk this weekend, and took our daughter to the play area that is on the beach, across from the police/info building. The kids there were playing with cigarette butts found in the sand and we found a plastic knife under the slide. Underneath the gym it smells strongly of urine. Someone please "recycle" the sand from that area?!
All Of Front Ave West Haven, CT 06516, USA - West Haven
All of Front Ave in West Haven
including Quigley Stadium
are full of holes. It is a very bumpy ride and it feels like the axle of my car is going to come off. Quigley has a very large sink hole in it. When we go park
our cars for any game it is very
dangerous. Does anyone maintain that lot. It is a discrase to West haven
394 606 Forest Rd West Haven, CT 06516, USA - West Haven
"Forest Road" in West Haven approaching RT34.
The "All About Me" people decide to start making this ONE lane into a TWO lane in front of the cemetery. People drive into ON COMING TRAFFIC to go around us more sensible people (who know its a SINGLE LANE) to go into the turn lane a 1/4 mile ahead. This is INSANE, dangerous and absurd. Why do they do it? Because no one is there to stop them. Cops need to station at this area during peak times and give out tickets! After all, this is their job and it will bring money into the state for sure!

There is a ton of garbage, both in the brush on the edges of the beach, and on the beach itself down at this end of West Haven's shoreline. All sorts of paper, plastic, and unmentionables. This is one small sample of a widespread issue.
Colonial Blvd. West Haven, CT 06516, USA - West Haven
Colonial Blvd, needs to be made one way on each side. There is not enough room on each side of the street for two way traffic. One side of the street is notoriously busier than the other, that is not fair we all pay the same taxes. I have attached an image of how the one way traffic flow should work on the street. If the police department is not competent enough to see that there is an issue here and make a necessary change, perhaps a signed petition by residents and a formal complaint to he CT. DOT would be in order. In addition,since the weather has gotten nicer there has been an increase in motorcycle traffic and speeders on the street as well. In addition, between 6:45 am and 7:15 during the week a school bus is always speeding southbound down the street. In regards to the blight, it would be much appreciated if the city could spend a little money to clean up the creek and the grounds in the middle of the street, and possibly plant some trees or grass.
Beach St West Haven, CT - West Haven
This is a very hazardous area for walking, and there is no alternative across the street in front of Chick's, where there is no sidewalk and little room for a pedestrian. So pedestrians are forced to share this dangerous road with motorists who flaunt the absence of police patrol of this road (why is this??), and drive in reckless excess of the posted speed limit -- wait, there is NO posted speed limit on this road!. The city KNOWS this is a dangerous area because they put up cones for a charity walk on Sept 18, but then removed the cones at the end of the day. The problem is exacerbated by dangerous driving; east-bound motorists turn onto Beach St from Washington Ave, and then have the long straightaway to accelerate to speeds often exceeding 50mph, with complete impunity, reaching the bend at Morse Ave and often appearing to barely have control of their vehicle as they make the turn...right where pedestrians are now walking. All that's waiting to happen is for one of these motorists to be texting or talking on a cell phone, and for someone, tragically, to be killed or seriously hurt. This is malicious negligence on the part of the city of West Haven, and should something tragic happen, they should be taken to task and to court. There's no reason why they can't put up temporary structures, such as NJ dividers, to create a safe passage for ped's. Of course, there's also no reason why they can't install speed humps on Beach St (such as one finds more and more on streets in New Haven), or some other traffic calming device. And as days shorten, morning walkers are even more endangered, walking in the dark and sometimes in fog, by the long stream of speeding east-bound commuters (often using cell phones, doing their hair, etc.) who use Beach St as an alternative to other east-west roads that slow them down with traffic lights and stop signs.
Shame on you, West Haven!!
12 Woodland St West Haven, CT 06516 - West Haven
I drive passed this house almost every day on my way to work. On any given day, there are anywhere from 6-10 junk cars in the driveway, yard, and in the street. Some of them are sinking into the ground, others just falling apart. I would guess that only 2-3 of them are actually registered (if that, looking at the # of them without license plates). I can only imagine how this is affecting the value of the houses in this neighborhood and is just an eye sore in general. Aren't there zoning laws to prevent this from happening? Can someone please do something about this? Many West Haven residents are trying to keep West Haven clean, meanwhile there are travesties like this house going unnoticed.
