Fair Haven is a Diverse Community with a Rich History and a Beautiful Waterfront
I want to give a shout out to two special guests I invited to this years retreat
Doug Hausladen - Director of Traffic and Parking for the City of New Haven- (a representative of his department will be there if he is unable to attend)
They will be discussing the complete streets 2.0 application process. Through this program, we qualify for traffic. pedestrian, cycling, parking, busing (my pet peeve) and various other improvements in our neighborhood. They have all the details. However a part of that program application process is they need input from the community residents from all streets about all streets in Fair Haven.. And here we have the most active community group in fair haven, Chatham Square, and here we have an annual 'planning' retreat. So if you are coming to the retreat then this is the perfect time to brainstorm at home, write down a list of things that you see as needing attention and bring it with you to the retreat. The theme is low budget and cost effective. Nathalie Bonafe has agreed to lead this project.
Robert Fecke - (unless it snows because he really wants to go skiing)
He is the owner of Reclamation Lumber on Grand Avenue. He is a very talented carpenter and proud resident and business owner right here in Fair Haven. Robert is really concerned with litter along Fair Haven, (thats his pet peeve) Well, Robert wants to announce a major business sponsorship of his along Grand Ave. And this just might be an answer to the issue of overall litter reduction. I do know he needs some help on this as well. Robert Fecke has agreed to lead this project.
