New $1.8M Fort Hale Park pier opens in New Haven

April 23–NEW HAVEN — State Sen. Martin Looney now can again take his grandson fishing off the pier at Fort Hale Park.

Six years after Tropical Storm Irene wrecked the popular East Shore gathering spot, the community assembled Monday at the newly rebuilt pier.

“I began taking my son fishing here in 1982; he was 6. Then we lost a few years after the pier was severely damaged in Hurricane Gloria in 1985, and then back again once it was restored,” said Looney, a New Haven Democrat and President Pro Tempore in the state Senate. “Then in 2008 when my grandson was 6, we began taking him here with us as well. Unfortunately, since 2011, we haven’t been able to do that. We’re looking forward to doing that again.”

Looney was one of several local, state and federal officials joining Mayor Toni Harp in a ceremony commemorating the grand opening of the rebuilt pier.

The original pier was badly damaged in 2011 by the impact of Irene and then completely destroyed in 2012 by Superstorm Sandy.

While it was more cost effective to remove the old pier and build a new one, which was funded with a $1.8 million state bond grant, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said the pier needed to have a different design due to rising water levels.

“This state-of-the art pier marks not only an important investment in New Haven, it marks an important investment in our future — because it was built to withstand the unpredictable and powerful weather patterns brought on by a changing climate,” Malloy said. “It’s an example of how we should be building in the 21st century — taking account of the fact that the sea will rise, and storms will be more frequent and more powerful than we have become accustomed to.”

Despite being better oriented to withstand severe weather, Malloy said there is no guarantee future extreme weather events won’t cause damage to the new pier.

“You can’t assume anything,” he said. “It’s built differently, taking into account the more difficult weather we’ve been experiencing over the past 10 years. It’s a modern attempt to defeat Mother Nature.”

The yellow-wooded pier now extends 360 feet — 10 feet longer than before — into the teal waters of New Haven Harbor and features a 140-foot hammerhead walkway, or “T,” at the end, something that should be especially enticing for fishermen hoping to cast in deeper waters, Harp said.

The hammerhead walkway also includes a 40-foot-wide octagonal space, which will serve as a new gathering space for classes, meetings or other events, according to Harp.

“This is a place where people come…This is where folks come together. We’re adding a jewel to our city today. We’re adding a jewel to our community. We’re adding a jewel to this region and to this state,” said State Rep. Al Paolillo (D-New Haven).

For Paolillo, who is the former majority leader for the Board of Alders, the newly rebuilt pier is a gathering place for the community. He remembers coming to Fort Hale Park pier with his grandparents 35 years ago, he said.

“What was important for us was rebuilding the pier to recreate the opportunities that were here (before) and make them even better. A pier that would not only resist storms, but also work as a spot for the community,” said City Engineer Giovanni Zinn.

Of the 50 or so community members that came out to celebrate the pier’s grand opening, most clustered in small groups along the pier following the press conference, gazing out at the sparkling water, breathing in the salt air and enjoying the slight breeze. Looney and Malloy tried their luck at casting with fishing rods.

“This is the kind of thing that helps makes communities whole, that gives them a sense of pride, a sense of connection,” Looney said. “As you’ll see, there are more amenities, with that extended ‘T’ out there and other things that will make it a better place to fish and a better place to relax and just be with friends and family.”

CT leases old rail cars for new Hartford Line

CT Department of Transportation

On the face of it, amid widespread reductions in transportation services across Connecticut, the opening of a new rail line ought to be received with enthusiasm. But reaction to the planned launch of the new Hartford Line in May has been mixed to say the least.

The 62-mile commuter rail line will run 17 round-trip weekday trains between New Haven and Hartford. The state has arranged a deal with Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority to lease 16 out-of-service rail cars for three years, with an option for renewal after the term ends. Leasing and repairs will cost Connecticut a combined $4.54 million for the first three years, and the bill could climb to a total of $9 million if the contract is extended another three years. But the catch is that these rail cars are 30 years old and deemed in need of “serious overhaul” by Massachusetts.

“I feel that the media misrepresented a lot of things,” Connecticut Department of Transportation Commissioner James Redeker said. “Our comfort level with these cars is very high.”

Leasing old, unwanted cars from another state was not the department’s original intention. When the Department of Transportation was devising a budget for the Hartford Line in 2016, it planned on using coaches currently employed on Shore Line East, while allocating New Haven Line rail cars to Shore Line East in their place. This meant that the 2016 budget did not have to include funding for the purchase of new cars.

But New Haven Line ridership has been larger than anticipated, necessitating all cars on hand to meet the demand. According to Redeker, this called for a change of strategy. Because rail cars have to be purchased in bulk, it was not feasible for the state to buy new coaches at this point in the fiscal year, especially with a looming deadline for opening the new line. Transportation funding is also frozen as the state’s Special Transportation Fund continues to dry up.

“They were probably scrambling for rail cars once they realized this, since there aren’t a lot of places to go for these things,” said Jim Cameron, a Hearst Newspapers transportation commentator and CT Rail Commuter Council member.

The Department of Transportation ultimately settled the solution of leasing cars from Massachusetts and asked the state legislature to approve an additional $2.3 million in unbudgeted spending for the project — $1.8 million for first-year leasing bills and $500,000 for mechanical and cosmetic renovations. The funding will settle emergency costs until end of the fiscal year in June. After returning the borrowed rail cars, Connecticut will reach out to other state operators to combine purchases for a new fleet of cars.

Whether this is a wise business strategy remains to be seen. In 2011, Massachusetts transportation officials described this particular set of coaches as not worth the cost to rehabilitate. According to a fleet plan issued seven years ago, the state retired these rail cars because they “received minimal investment over their lifespan.”

“These coaches haven’t been used in about three years, do not meet Federal Railroad Administration regulations in this day and age and each coach’s capital investment would be about half the cost of buying a new coach,” said Leah Epstein, spokeswoman for the Massachusetts Department of Transportation.

Asked to comment on this evaluation, Redeker said “it doesn’t surprise him at all,” but he said Connecticut and Massachusetts have different needs. Connecticut is looking for a short-term solution until replacements can be prepared and thus has different standards compared to Massachusetts’s analysis of whether the coaches can be renovated for an additional 30 years of service.

By the time the arrangement expires, Connecticut is bound by contract to return the rail cars, renovated and ready for service. According to Redeker, Massachusetts plans to use these revamped cars at some point for the Knowledge Corridor north of Springfield, Massachusetts.

“The fact that they are planning on using these cars speaks for itself,” said Redeker, in reference to the safety of the rail cars.

Another point of concern is the start date of the new rail line. Long delays have been an issue with the Hartford Line since the idea was first proposed in 2004 by then-Gov. Jodi Rell. Disputes with Amtrak, inclement weather and budget issues collectively contributed to a delay in the line’s opening from late 2016 to January 2018 and now May 2018.

The start date of the new lines remains unclear. Currently, four of the rail cars are ready for use, while four more are in Rhode Island for repair and eight more are still in Massachusetts. The leasing contract for these rail cars was finalized only five months ago, in December. And Redeker told the News that “if the stars align … we might be ready by mid-May.”

Gov. Dannel Malloy is scheduled to officially announce the start date of Hartford Line on April 19 during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new Meriden train station.

New Haven Land Trust welcomes the first signs of spring

While many Yale students were studying in a library or eating in a dining hall, just miles away, a group of New Haven residents took advantage of Saturday’s warm weather to explore a new ecosystem.

In an effort coordinated by the New Haven Land Trust, Ranger Joe Milone from the New Haven Parks and Recreation Department led 14 city residents on a walk through the Pond Lily Nature Preserve, welcoming the first signs of spring to the community.

The “Signs of Spring” walk aimed to increase awareness about the West River ecosystem and its importance to the fish and wildlife in the area. The event was coordinated by the New Haven Land Trust, a nonprofit organization that promotes community engagement in land stewardship and cultivation through land conservation, community gardening and environmental education. The New Haven Land Trust oversees six nature preserves and nearly fifty community gardens, all within city limits.

“[The Land Trust is] connecting nature to an urban environment for people who wouldn’t have access otherwise,” said New Haven resident Ivette Lopez. “It’s nice to see the improvements they’re doing for this area.”

As the group walked through the Pond Lily Nature Preserve, they encountered early indicators of spring. Sunlight streamed through a canopy of branches as the babbling of the West River intensified and red cardinals flew overhead.

Events like the “Signs of Spring” walk are held throughout the year, but most often in the spring and summer. Milone pointed out some of the natural signs to look for, including new shoots coming off plants, buds on trees, and birds migrating back up to Connecticut.

“We’re all part of the same world,” Milone said, as the group bid farewell to the nature preserve and its wildlife.

Arabelle Schoenberg ’20, the Nature Preserves Education and Outreach Coordinator for the Land Trust, said the Land Trust aims to maintain ecological integrity in New Haven, adding that it also wants to increase food sovereignty and agency in the Elm City.

Schoenberg’s role at the Land Trust involves managing the nature preserves, coordinating volunteer efforts in trail maintenance and reaching out to rangers and professors to lead community events. Schoenberg is a junior in Pierson College, currently on leave to pursue her work with the Land Trust.

The New Haven Land Trust is mostly funded by private grants from organizations like the Community Foundation, the Quinnipiac River Fund and Audobon CT. It plays a unique role in the Elm City, protecting a small area of land that faces the mounting pressures of urban pollution. The land is threatened by what Milone describes as a “snowball effect” of ecological deterioration — when the fish die, the birds die and so on.

The Land Trust’s conservation efforts have produced some promising results. According to Milione, bald eagles are beginning to nest across the river, a positive indicator that predators are returning to the ecosystem.

“Nature’s restoring itself after centuries of being dammed up,” said John Champion, a New Haven resident. “There’s a wide-ranging group of people that lend themselves to the effort, but the Land Trust has really taken leadership”

The New Haven Land Trust was founded in 1982.

Renovations at Tower One/Tower East Bring Modern Amenities to the Senior Community

Please install the latest Adobe Flash Player Plugin to watch this content.

Sponsored by Tower One/Tower East & KBE Building Corporation

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (CT STYLE) — Lillian and Lee Liberman have been married for 74 years and during that time, have lived together in the Elm City.

“We spent 53 years in our house here in Westville, New Haven,” Lillian said.

But as age took a toll, living in their home became difficult and they knew they needed to make a change. So the couple moved into a newly remodeled unit in Tower One/Tower East, a senior living community in the heart of New Haven.

When asked what they love most about living in the Towers, Lee joked, “No cooking, no cleaning.”

“There’s a feeling of safety here,” Lillian added.

Updates to the Towers are being made by KBE Building Corporation.

“We’ve converted well over 100 apartments to assisted living apartments, meaning that they are more comfortable and have accessibility built into them, with handicap grab bars, accessible light switches and lighting and larger spaces so they’re more comfortable in their apartments,” said Mike Newton, a project manager at KBE.

With a major renovation completed in 2015, a second project is just getting underway.

“Currently some of the projects that we’ll be working on within the Tower One building are modernization to the Tower East elevators, door upgrades to the Tower One elevators,” said KBE Project Manager Nick Wall. “We’ll be starting cabling within the hallways that will eventually bring wifi to the units.”

Those cables will also support a high tech emergency system.

“So when they’re in their actual suites, if something does happen to them, they can immediately hit their pendant and it can call out to security and the local fire department,” Wall explained.

KBE has worked on more than 30 senior living facilities and are attuned to the needs of the community.

“We’re doing this project with as little impact to the residents lives as possible,” Wall said. “That’s the goal.”

So residents like Lillian and Lee can continue living in a comfortable and safe environment.

“It’s more than i expected out of this place,” Lee said of the Towers.

“This is home,” Lillian said.

How to Choose New Haven Housing

If you are considering making a move in the area of New Haven, then finding the proper housing is going to be a priority. After all, we spend our time at home and it is the part of our lives that we expect to make us feel safe and sound. In order to make the best choice possible, a number of things should be kept in mind. It can really make a difference in how quickly you find the right place for your needs.

One of the most important things to consider when looking for New Haven housing is the price. It doesn’t matter if you are going to be paying rent or if you are trying to secure a mortgage, sticking to your budget is vital. Not only does it make a difference in your ability to afford the price, it also can make a difference in your overall lifestyle as well.

Another thing to consider is the location of the housing, and this is where it gets tricky. You want to have something that is in a safe location so you feel comfortable traveling to and from home but you also want to consider some of the other things that you do in your life as well. This could include taking the kids to school or driving back and forth to work. When your home is near what you do, it is a convenient choice.

If you want to find the best housing for your needs, you should also consider bringing in a real estate agent who can help. They can guide you through the process and may be able to help you find an option you had not considered before. Once you find the home in the right place and at the right price, it is just a matter of signing on the dotted line.

The Size And Style Of Your New Haven Housing Will Impact Your Utility Costs

There are many options for your New Haven housing possibilities. You can choose to live like most, either in an apartment or detached home, or you might go down a route that is a little more uncommon, such as a townhome, condo, or even a tiny/small home or a mobile home.

All have their benefits and their drawbacks, and while all factors should be considered, there is one particular facet to living in each that many homeowners or renters fail to take into consideration. That factor is the fact that the style and size of a New Haven housing option is going to have a huge impact on their utility bill.

Commonly, standalone homes have the highest utility bills, but this is not always the case. They tend to have more square footage than apartments or other housing options, and so they take more energy to heat or cool down. On the other hand, the right trees and shade might make them easier to keep cool, especially compared to apartments on the sunny side of a building that get pummelled with direct light for the better part of the day.

Apartments also might get heated up more from the fact that there are warm units and heat coming in from apartments to the side, above, and even below. On the other hand, this can also reduce the need for running the heat in the winter, as a unit stays warmer so much easier.

What sides a residence shares with others, be it an apartment, a condo, or a townhome, as well as the square footage overall, are two of the biggest factors into the utility bills. However, trees that provide shade or even break cold winds in the winter have impact too.

Unity rally set for today in New Haven

NEW HAVEN, CT (WFSB) –

Officials in New Haven have scheduled a unity event at City Hall for Monday afternoon.

Mayor Toni Harp and Chief Anthony Campbell are co-hosting the event at 3:30 p.m.

They said they invited dozens of civic leaders, public safety officials, clergy members, business leaders and educators to underscore the historic and core values of the community.

They said they are seeking to showcase the city’s unified commitment to acceptance and tolerance in the wake of what’s happening across the country.

New Haven’s event is set to happen on floor 2 of City Hall on Church Street.
