More tree vandalism

This weekend we noticed two newly planted trees at Quinnipiac River Park that have been snapped off. I suggest that we all talk with people who use the park, express concern and outrage, and find out how those trees can be quickly replaced. Any other ideas? That's two of our parks suffering from fatal damage to young trees!

"For now, nobody wants to go to Fair Haven"

“I’d like to see a cruise ship port. In most states with a waterfront like this, there would be a mall and tourist attractions,” Clarke said. “But for now, nobody wants to go to Fair Haven. I hope people will get over the fear factor and come take a look.”… Continue

fighting negative image of our neighborhood

I was really upset by an article in this week's New Haven Advocate (June 3) that describes our neighborhood in a very negative light.

The Issue of traffic, driving, and mature citizens.

Traffic control, specifically speeding, has been a priority for the CSNA. I read with interest an article published in WSJ concerning the issue of mature citizens, their driving abilities, and associated travel expense. I thought this article, which I have attached, might be an interesting resource to the community in relation to our concerns about traffic. This article might also be of interest to those grappling with the issue of driving and aging parents.
