The sign that reminds drivers to stop for pedestrians has gone missing at Court and Olive. It's been missing for a few days now and I don't see it off to the side anywhere. Can we get a replacement?
96 Olive St New Haven, Connecticut
Every weekday cars speed well over 30 MPH on this residential road. It seems as though a lot of people are bypassing more car-friendly, wider roads like State St to commute to and from work. Perhaps people are heading to Wooster Street... not sure.
Either way, some sort of speed enforcement should be put into place. My suggestion would be something as easy as a few speed bumps or maybe even stop signs. There is a lot of foot traffic in the neighborhood crossing over Olive Street either by people heading to downtown, walking their dogs or just living there. I can't tell you how many times I've parked my car or tried walking to downtown and how long I've had to wait at crosswalks for cars to stopping zooming by.

There is always at least one (usually 2 and sometimes 3) big yellow commercial moving trucks parked on the street. I assume an employee/owner of the moving service, Two Young Studs Moving (cool name, ugly trucks) lives on the street and always parks there.
But according to this law, it isn't permissiable. Plus the trucks are ugly and not something you want to see everytime you look out the window.
Sec. 29-53. - Parking trucks in residential zones.
No person having the custody and control of a vehicle or vehicles with capacities of more than half-a-ton, shall be permitted to park on any street in any residential zone at any time of the day or night. However, such vehicles shall be permitted in residential zones when in the conduct of a service being simultaneously performed.
Olive Street And Chapel Street New Haven, Connecticut
This idea was raised in a thread on the Independent after the death of a pedestrian down the street at Olive and Green in October 2014.
One thought was to ask for subsidy from local residential developers bringing property on-line in the next couple of years.
I think its a great idea so I posted it here.
Vote it up if you walk, bike or drive here , like this idea and want to stay in the loop.

Could DPW send the recycling trucks to our area after 7 like they did before last month? Trucks arriving before 6 am wake up the entire street including those of us working late shifts. I understand you have to weigh safety concerns but surely it is safe to pick up recycling after 7 so residents' well being is preserved. Thanks for your consideration. This has only been changed in the past month.

My trash bin was stolen over the last week.
(I had already reported my recycling bin stolen 2 weeks ago).
Is there any way to speed the delivery of new bins??
OR is there an interim way to get my garbage/recycling picked up?
I have NO way at present to leave out either trash OR recycling?

Could recycling trucks show up after 530 am? It is super early and this is new- they used to come after 7 and then those if us working nights could handle it. It windows benefit the residents if they went back to the old schedule which was not 530 am pick ups.

Recently there's been a group of young boys (teenagers and young adults) riding in groups in the general vicinity of Wooster Square. They ride into oncoming traffic, disregarding common traffic rules (and common sense). These young men have also actively intimidated several friends walking in the area.
Most recently on 10/26/2014 there was some kind of incident at the Chapel/Wooster Pl corner of the park. There were several police cars parked there. I was heading up Chapel towards the park and at least 15 of these boys were blocking the entire street, riding in and out of traffic unpredictably, with bandanas covering their faces. Some hit the cars with their fists as they went by very slowly. The cops were choosing to ignore them, which I've seen several times in the past month - kids doing wheelies, blocking traffic, and intimidating drivers - with nearby police seemingly ignoring the problem.

The intersection of Brewery and Water Streets is very dangerous because there is no prohibition for making a right turn on red from Brewery Street onto Water Street. When the pedestrian signal says walk, people are taking right turns onto Water Street when there are people in the crosswalk. It is very very unwise. Example: Massive dump truck involved in highway construction turning right as person in crosswalk is approaching. At times there is a constant stream of cars and SUVs etc doing the same, in a hurry, and not caring how this scares people trying to rely on this cross signal. The pedestrian signal works fine and the cross walk has the standard markings. Wouldn't hurt to mark it even better, but the no right turn on red is an absolute necessity and should be in place now. A high school is located at this intersection as well and when buses are coming and going it is almost chaotic
