SCSU Garage

Hi All:

SCSU presented their updated Master Plan last week. They still want to put a 250 car garage at the bottom of the Ella T. Grasso Blvd & Crescent. This is not good. There was coverage on the story by NHI. There is a petition going around also even thought the official time frame passed it is a good idea to sign on.

I would like thank Toni Walker our State Representative & Carl Goldfield - Alderman Ward 29 for coming to the hearing and voicing their opposition to the garage as well.

Check in the comments section of the NHI story for my comments.



Mayor's Budget Presentation to the Public

The Mayor will be having a Community Budget Meeting on

Wednesday, April 1st at Edgewood School from 6:30 to 8pm.

This is a great opportunity to for the community to be involved in the discussion of the budget for the upcoming year. I plan on being there so I hope to see you!

Suspicious Car in Westville

Hi All,

There has been a suspicious van in the Westville neighborhood following kids around. The van is an older white Dodge Caravan with wood paneling on the side. The license plate number is 785 TWY.

Please be vigilant and make sure kids are aware of their surroundings and not walking alone. Knowing "safe" houses along their routes is also a good idea in case they need help.

If you see this van, or any suspicious activity, call it in to the non-emergency number immediately, 946-6316. If it is an emergency call911.

You should also let Lieutenant Bernie Somers know by leaving a message on his cell phone at 687-0532 and/or on his email at Bernie should be contacted *but only after the incident is reported to the emergency or non emergency number.

If it is not reported downtown it is not logged and there is no way to dispatch an officer.

Also,Lieutenant Bernie Somers will be out of town next week and will not be available so messages left with him will not be looked at until he returns.
