On this website, on the first page under who we are and what we do there is a link under the words " City of New Haven Guide to Fair Haven" this is the address it links to:

unfortunately it is a little out of date but most of the info is current. I have but a request in to the city to have it updated, others should do the same if you think it a useful document.

If you know of anyone moving into the neighborhood and you or they have any difficulty printing this documents let me know and I can print a copy. If they are Spanish speaking and you want me to accompany you to go by to welcome them, I would be happy to do so. I am sure there are others who would also be willing to help with this outreach effort if asked.
