Many months ago, UI installed a new utility pole at this location. However, the old pole remains there--it looks like its propping up the new pole.
The old pole was placed on a slab of wood by UI in what looks like an attempt to prevent it from falling under the crumbling street curb. Its not working as the picture shows, the soil from under the wood slab is eroding.
In addition to being a safety concern it is an eyesore and very trashy looking. UI tied the two utility poles together with what looks like electrical tape and some wire!
It has stayed this way for at least 6 months. Since this has moved beyond a blight issue due to soil erosion, I am reporting it now.

Public walkway not maintained. Tree debris and damage from hurricane two years ago. Public access to water not being maintained by Harbour Landing Condominiums.

This is ridiculous, please remove screw and clean up the fire damage. A power wash would make me happy! 30 min of work to make this park playable again. This park gets played in every day by lots of kids including mine, please fix before re surfacing the ball field yet again

No construction permits visible and no sign of construction in progress (except the signs). Public access to water blocked. Behind Harbor Landing Condos.
The reason I'm reporting this is because I believe this is fake construction designed solely to block the public water access behind the Harbor Close condos. The reason I think it is fake is because the "construction site" doesn't begin where the actual damaged boardwalk is -- but conveniently starts where the Harbor Condo water view begins. You can see in the photo below that there is at least another 30 feet of boardwalk that is walkable until the damage begins.
Today's date is Nov 30, 2014. If there was a permit, we would have a date by which the construction is set to complete.
I would be thrilled if Harbor Landing actually fixed this issue which is now 2 years+ standing. But if they have the wood to put up a sign, they should actually fix the boardwalk.

I was just looking at the Complete Streets 2.0 information on the City Website and City Point (Sea St., South Water St.) is not listed as having a submitted application http://www.cityofnewhaven.com/Engineering/completestreets.asp. We had a meeting with Hausladen over the summer and we were told it takes years for a project to be approved. We were told that a traffic study would take place in the fall and nothing has happened yet.
On another note, Olive St. is now the focus for traffic safety...I thought it took years??? I am sorry that a life was lost, but is this what it takes to get the city to take action? We are trying to prevent a serious accident yet nothing seems to be happening? More hot air from the city...
