Rematch On: Elicker Files For Mayor Run; Targets Lead Paint, Seeks Public Financing

(Updated with Harp response) Surrounded by his wife and two young daughters, Justin Elicker filed papers Wednesday to challenge incumbent Toni Harp for mayor — and opened with a focus on cleaning up lead paint in children’s homes and money fueling election campaigns.

Pitch Promises Paperless Problem-Solving

Thomas Breen photo A code inspector notices a leaky roof, or a contractor working without a permit. Instead of reaching for a pen and a pad of paper, she uses a tablet and internet-assisted camera to document the problem — which then shows up on a map shared with otherproblem-solvers.

City officials laid out that tech-assisted utopia as they convinced alders to advance two Information Technology contracts.

Demolition Turns Into Historic Opportunity

The 90-day clock has begun to tick for the demolition of 71 Shelton Ave., a long-vacant 1915 building in the Winchester Repeating Arms Historic District in Newhallville.

That’s because contamination from its life in the early 1960s as a site for the fabrication of nuclear fuel components is too serious for any option other than a take-down and removal including the concrete slab foundation and at least two feet of soil underneath.

The gleaming silver lining for the loss of this historic structure is that as “mitigation” or compensation, the Goffe Street Armory — nearby and with a related historical context but technically not within the historic district — can be researched and then nominated for a place on the National Historic Register.

With that designation, the city-owned armory becomes eligible for a host of preservation grants and tax credit programs that down the road may contribute significantly to preserving it and giving it a new, repurposed life.

Housing Panel Targets Zoning, Suburbs

Pass an inclusionary zoning ordinance. Let the housing authority build outside of New Haven. Set up a public database of affordable housing resources. And create a new affordable housing commission to stay on top of local, state, and federal policy changes.

Those are just a handful of the dozens of recommendations the city’s Affordable Housing Task Force plans to send to the Board of Alders regarding how to legislatively address the city’s affordable housing crisis.
