This home has been vacant for at least six years. There is occasional activity as occasionally people come and put stuff in it (in a minivan RIDDLED with Picard stickers) and takes stuff (childrens bikes, etc) out. I'm really not sure what they do there, my best guess is they're using it for storage.
On trash day there's always bags outside, even though no one lives there. It would appear that the trash is not being generated at this residence and is being brought from other locations. As is clearly evident in the attached picture, the roof is failing and I have personally witnessed wildlife entering the home. The attached photo is from when this home was put on the market some months ago, but pretty much tells the story. I know for a fact that I am not the first to complain about this property.
It would be safe to conclude that the owner listed as a "Daniel Rocano" on the vision appraisal site is connected to someone at town hall. Each time a complaint is lodged with town hall in reference to the state of this property, a short time later Daniel/etc show up to do some basic maintenance (lawn mowing/etc) without ever having addressed the real problem. The house is failing, and needs to be examined by building inspectors.
It is certainly pulling down the values of our homes and provides a very real health hazard to the surrounding homes.
I am looking into other ways to get some action on this, but figured I would start here.
If anyone from West Haven Town Hall reads this, please. Please. Do something. We have a great neighborhood. And a lot of wonderful neighbors. Daniel and his dilapidated home are not in standing with the neighborhood, and his lack of consideration has created a potential health hazard for anyone who lives around him.

Instead of using the public sewer system, this particular house drains their shower water through a pipe onto the sidewalk and street daily between 6:30-8:00am. Sudsy, soapy water is not safe for children to play in or animals to accidentally drink. This is a health hazard, but the city building department does nothing- when we've reported this, we were told the women who live there claim it is a pipe from a sump pump. Well, none of the other sump pumps on the hill have run for over a week (it hasn't rained for 9 days!) and when they do run, it is not with scented bubbling water at the same time we happen to shower, it is after (or during a storm)- the women in this house have no respect for the environment or people around them.

The womens locker room at the pool at the WH High school is beyond disgusting! The floors are covered with black goop (I think the little smaller black rice-like objects may be from the a mice having a party, while larger black globs are just built up dirt), the tile walls moldy, and the "marble" walls so slimy that brown crud is on your fingers if you accidentally touch the shower walls. There is a BandAid that has been under one of the benches by the shower that has been there for weeks! The air vents are coated with a very thick layer of dust. Calling the Board of Ed or Park & Rec Depts is a joke- we just get referred back and forth, or transferred to a dialtone. I can't believe the Board of Health hasn't shut this down. The pool was closed for over a month to work on the pool itself, which was great to see work getting done, but you'd think maybe someone would have cleaned the locker rooms at some point in time in the past year.

Women's locker room at WHHS pool is filthy, with mold and mildew growing daily. Calls to the school, superintendent, and BOE are ignored- one department refers me to the next department, who sends me back to the first.
The stone part of the shower walls have not been cleaned for months, the tile portion has black splotches of mildew and globs of old hair from a razor (visibly short hair where someone tapped a razor blade repeatedly on the tiles), that have been in the same spot since before Thanksgiving, the benches and floors under the benches are covered in slime and soap scum. Most of the hooks for towels are gone, so now the only place to put a towel while showering is on top of soap scum and mold. The air vents have a thick layer of grime. The Board of Health should probably close the pool. I will post more photos separately since for some reason this is only letting me put one on here.

The pool at this house has not been used or covered in at least five years. The water is black and looks almost solid. It is a health hazard for the entire neighborhood. This pool is now a breeding ground for mosquitoes and should be drained and closed properly.

There is a large amount trash all over the ground next to the dumpsters in the municipal parking lot. Rats and other animals have been seen in the trash as it smells and has a lot of food waste in it. The lanlord has been contacted on several occasions over the last month and has not responded. There is also a daycare less then 30 feet away from the dumpsters.
Beach St West Haven, CT - West Haven
West Haven Public Health has posted signs (see attached photo) only from Grove Pier and west, declaring that the shore is closed to swimming and fishing, but no such signs are posted anywhere east, despite several fishing piers, a bait shop at East and Beach, and numerous access points to the beach. When I phoned the dept yesterday to point this out, I was dismissed, and a follow up email to the commissioner resulted in no changes. People are fishing and swimming on the shore, unaware of the health hazards!
