  • 972 State St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Bishop-Hine

    JP Demspeys is attracting motorcycles to the neighborhood that make it unliveable. This needs to stop and we need the police's help. There are three bike parked out front right now and I am waiting for an officer but I have not had luck w the police's help in the past.

    We need traffic stops for decibel meters on State Street.

  • 238 Elm St New Haven, CT - Downtown

    Last year, in their Downtown Bicycle and Pedestrian Gap Analysis (http://www.cityofnewhaven.com/TrafficParking/pdfs/GapAnalysis2009.pdf), Nelson\Nygaard Consultants recommended a physically separated bike lane—or cycle track—on Elm Street. How would you design such a facility? View a 3D mock-up of two potential designs here and offer your suggestions. Don't like it? Download Google SketchUp to your computer here: http://sketchup.google.com/ and then download my drawings here: http://www.box.net/shared/z8e1db4ssq and give it your best shot.

    For cycle track design guidelines and best practices, have a look at this design guide from the National Association of City Transportation Officials: http://nacto.org/cities-for-cycling/design-guide/cycle-tracks/
    and this report from bicycle-oriented transportation planning consultants at Alta Planning: http://www.altaplanning.com/cycle+tracks.aspx

  • 82 Court St New Haven, CT 06511 - Wooster Square

    The bridge on Court Street between State and Artizan is unbelievably dark. The same bridge on Chapel has 2 lights and yet far more people travel via Court from downtown to get home to Wooster Square. Please fix!

  • 374 East St New Haven, CT 06511 - Mill River

    On my way home from work yesterday I came across this!

    5 off road (2 dirt bikes and 3 quads) barreling down East Street at top speed.
    They blew through the light, causing oncoming traffic to screech to a stop as they continued to tear down the street at top speed.

    I managed to take a picture as fast as I could.
    What can be done about this???

  • Forbes Ave New Haven, CT 00 - Annex

    Be very careful crossing the tracks on your bike. Go slow and cross perpendicular to the rails. Signage is desperately needed. See http://groups.yahoo.com/group/elmcitycycling/message/8023

  • Fair Haven New Haven, CT, USA - Mill River

    Along the East bank of the Mill River between State Street and Humphrey Street along the Western property line of the old CT Transit site lies a great trail opportunity with little upfront cost to tax-payers.

    Readying this connection for a trail will pave the way for recreational access between East Rock Park and Grand Avenue.

    We have spoken with City Plan and City Engineering and it appears that this is a reasonable request and use for the river shores.

    We have also spoken to State Representative Roland Lemar who supports the project and believes that with interest from resident's demonstrated we can get a trail funded here.

    If you would use this area recreationally or would like to see this trail created please vote up this issue and share it with neighbors. As organizers we would like to see that there is real interest(50 or more votes might convince us :) from the community before we organize to push the issue to the State.

    If you have thoughts in support or opposition please add them in the comments!

    Let's make the Mill River something New Haven can be proud of again.

  • 141-199 Highland St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Prospect Hill

    Speeding on Highland Street has created an extremely unsafe situation, especially at pick-up and drop-off times at a local preschool here. Yesterday, at about 4:30 PM, a parent's car door was damaged by a speeding car (which did not stop). Thankfully, neither the parent NOR the child was injured. However, there are young children getting in and out of cars, being dropped off by caregivers on foot and by bike, and being escorted across the street here.

    Please, we need this speeding curtailed and traffic calming measures implemented before a tragic incident occurs here.

    UPDATE: The city and the school now are working together on this-- but in good conscience, we cannot close the issue since it has yet to be fixed.

  • New Haven - Dixwell

    Loud motorcyles, especially during Summer months, constantly disturb and harass citizens of New Haven by operating with illegal and potentially harmful exhaust systems. Why doesn't the NHPD or the Dept. Of Health do anything about this?
    New York is working on legislation:

  • 151 Clinton Ave New Haven, CT 06513 - Chatham Square

    A bike lane is needed between the existing Clinton Ave. and Orange Street bike lanes. If you agree click, "I want this fixed too” and comment. Pictures welcomed. We especially want to hear from folks currently biking from Chatham Square Neighborhood to any place north of the Green or beyond. Come on people we can get this! Here is one proposed route:

  • Humphrey St New Haven, CT - SOHU

    We have a beautiful tree canopy on Upper State Street but unfortunately it makes the busy restaurant corridor very dark at night.

    It would be really excellent to have a low level street lighting like other commercial districts in the City.

  • 219 267 Edwards St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Bishop-Hine

    let me start off by saying i am in no way opening this issue to debate whether abortion should be legal or not, so please do not use this space to preach one way or the other.

    although i personally find the protesters at planned parenthood (and now often by the peabody museum) very offensive, i am reporting this issue on the basis of what is legally their right and what is not.

    when i protested the start of the iraq war, the group i was with was told by an officer that we are allowed to hold a sign. but that since we do not own the property we were standing on, we could not affix signs to posts, or lean them on trees, or lay them on the ground, etc.

    this is what the protesters are doing on edwards street and sometimes whitney. they spread at least ten posters on property that they do not own.

    i'd like some clarification on what their rights are, and if we can ask them to tone down their presence if they are not legally allowed to take over the block.
