Chatham Square Neighborhood

A Diverse Fair Haven Community with Historic Homes and a Beautiful Waterfront

Jim Travers was abel to get Richard Miller out to Clinton Avenue to discuss traffic calming measures.  Street humps on Clinton between Pine Street and Grand Avenue will be placed, however an exact date has not been set as of yet. As soon as one has been set I will post that information.

As a long term project, Jim is looking into aquiring the funds necessary to place a center pedestrian island on the wider part of Clinton Avenue, othere options are currently being discussed to follow the current traffic calming manual.

Great news, Stephanie! And I'll second Lee's promotion of URI Greenspaces. It's a really easy way to get to know your neighbors and to make your block look even more beautiful!

Great move toward more complete streets in Fair Haven, thank you to all who made it possible.


Dear Neighbors to help calm traffic we should consider participating in the Urban Resources Initiative Greenspace program. Dan Burden, the traffic planning expert who we hired with our own money and with help from The Community Foundation and City says trees help slow down traffic, link here. Trees also have other benefits. Our neighborhood traffic report is to big to post here but if anyone is interested in seeing it I will look for a way to get it up online and post a link here on this site.


If you are interested in learning more about planting tree on Clinton Avenue or on any other street in our neighborhood please add your name and you block here, for example my block is Clinton between Grand and Pine. The program is over for this year but URI will start the process again in early 2012. We need to sign up early next year if we really want this to happen.
