Fair Haven is a Diverse Community with a Rich History and a Beautiful Waterfront
There's lots to love about living here, but as far as I'm concerned, illegal fireworks ain't among 'em. I've started a petition to get them stopped, and I'd appreciate your support. Here's what the petition says....
"Every year since at least 1988 we have had to endure the detonation of illegal fireworks throughout Fair Haven, Connecticut – nowhere more outrageously than on lower Grand Avenue.
Most recently, Friday, June 26, 2015, law-breakers discharged a number of 1.3G Fireworks (display fireworks) in the middle of a wood-chip-mulched Community Garden at 12 midnight, waking the entire neighborhood.
As concerned citizens and neighbors, we feel that preventing the possession and detonation of illegal fireworks must become be a top priority for the NHPD.
The infringement on everyone's right to a certain quality of life by the noise is the least of the problems. Fireworks like these threaten the safety of children and wildlife, and the very survival of the historic community of Fair Haven itself, made up mostly of wooden-structured homes some of which date back to before 1776.

BY SIGNING THIS PETITION, I JOIN MY NEIGHBORS IN URGING THE NEW HAVEN POLICE TO STOP THE DISCHARGE OF ILLEGAL FIREWORKS IN FAIR HAVEN IMMEDIATELY, EFFECTIVELY, AND FOR ALL TIME."
