Eld St New Haven, CT 06511 - SOHU
City Workers continue their longstanding efforts to destroy the trees in the East Rock neighborhood. Defying repeated complaints, city workers continue to regularly staple parking signs to trees, as if they were irrelevant to the quality of life (not to mention health) of New Haven residents. (Take a stroll down Eld and count the staples in each tree!!!) These workers had a party before the New Haven marathan, stapling up Grove as well. Trying to get the attention of public works on this issue is about as effective as writing postcards to the Bush adminstration.

Given the current epidemic of package-from-doorstep theft in East Rock---we were hit today---I thought it might be useful to open a thread about possible steps. Barring any police assistance (child, please!), we're on our own.
My suggestion: We all start leaving empty Amazon delivery boxes on our doorsteps. That would make it difficult for the thieves to identify which homes have a (real) package and those that are empty. It strikes me that the thieves want to move quickly; if we're adding lots of boxes, it slows them down, and it increases the chances that one of us will see them. If enough of us do this, it may make theft unprofitable since the thieves will faced with a higher chance of being caught and a higher chance of scoring an empty box. Any other ideas welcome, but I'll be putting out boxes in the morning and on random days thereafter.

What is UP with this?! Somebody new on the job? Street-sweeping "no parking" signs have been stapled to trees young and old all over this neighborhood and probably beyond. It's bad enough for the mature trees, but the young ones can't handle it.
I honestly thought this issue had been hashed out and solved over the last couple of years. Way to undermine the hours of good work of neighbors and URI, guys.
Will the city please send someone around to carefully remove the signs and staples from all the trees, asap? And please, please be extra gentle with the new trees.

Cars frequently park in the no parking zone on State St. by the intersection with Bradley St., right in front of Cafe Goodfellas. This is a no parking zone for a good reason - cars parked there obstruct the view of drivers turning from Bradley onto State. In particular, at least several times a week I see a black Mercury SUV parked illegally in front of Cafe Goodfellas. I'm pretty sure this SUV belongs to the restaurant owner. He was parked illegally again today. When I asked him to move his car to a legal parking spot, explaining the visibility issue, his response was "Or what?" Way to be a good neighbor, Cafe Goodfellas! My question to the city: Can we get some more active parking enforcement in this area? I'd especially like to see some enforcement on evenings and weekends, when it seems like there is virtually no enforcement at all.

This happens all over my route between the train station and East Rock, but today it was here. A driver came up behind me in his black Honda and was sounding his horn and revving his engine. I was already as close as I dare get to the parked cars for fear of getting doored. The driver proceeded to squeal his tires passing me with about a one foot clearance instead of the three feet required by law. He then cut me off at the intersection, but I am sure that had more to do with the gesture I gave as a reaction after being nearly run over by this maniac.
I would love to again see the signs on the buses reminding drivers to share the road with cyclists.

Cars often park illegally on State St. right next to the intersection with Bradley St. This makes it very difficult to see oncoming traffic when turning from Bradley onto State. Better enforcement of the no-parking area at this intersection would make it much safer.
29-31 Eld New Haven, CT - SOHU
A red dump truck filled with asbestos-contaminated construction material has been quarantined in front of 29-31 Eld Street for over a month now. The materials have been improperly secured; the tarp over the material has come loose repeatedly. This is obviously a health issue as well as a parking one since the truck is taking up prime space in front of our brownstone. Perhaps LCI could look into this?

There is a homless man who has creating a dwelling over the past year or so. He is located on the right hand side of the Exit 3 (Trumble Street) exit which happens to be in clear view of people's properties on Bradley Street. There is quite the collection of trash and tarps.

I just saw the EOC's message that snow removal is complete. There were parking bans for the last week and Eld St has not had snow removal to go along with these bans. There are no new parking spots available and now more cars will need spots. While I understand the awesome force of nature that this storm was, I do not understand why all major arteries into town are cleared so that individuals who live in suburbs can now easily commute into New Haven and Yale, but those who live in New Haven are still struggling to find parking and have safe streets to navigate between these major arteries.
29 Eld St New Haven, Connecticut - SOHU
Last week a contractor hired by the landlord of 29 Eld left old kitchen cabinets and other refuse on the curb. No one will "adopt" these items -- the landlord needs to schedule a bulk trash pick up or tell his contractor (big red pick up truck) to remove them, and to take all other refuse related to work on the apartment to the dump.

3 manhole covers on Eld St aren't seated correctly, causing a double bang as cars drive over them. The noise is audible even when house windows are closed. The noisy covers are near 28 Eld, 34 Eld, and in front of the Eld St. crosswalk at Orange St.
The faster cars go down Eld, the louder the bang.
