The transition team for the mayor-elect of New Haven will be holding a public hearing on Monday evening to get input from residents on community policing in the city and other public safety issues.

The Public Safety Subcommittee of Toni Harp’s transition team will conduct the hearing  in the basement public hearing room of 200 Orange Street in New Haven. It will start at 6:30 p.m.

“Safe streets provide a foundation for effective job creation and economic development efforts just as safe schools are a cornerstone for a sound public education system,” Mayor-elect Harp said. “It follows that safe neighborhoods and an overall sense of security improve the quality of life for all who live, work, and visit New Haven – since so many people have a stake in this I hope many of them will turn out and contribute to this public safety discussion on Monday.”

Bill Carbone, who chairs the transition team’s subcommittee, said Harp asked the members to reach out to residents for their ideas on public safety priorities.

“We know our community is deeply concerned about this issue and our committee looks forward to hearing their ideas on how we can make our city a safer place to live, work, be educated and enjoy the culture and richness of our downtown and neighborhoods,” he said.

Harp said people who cannot attend the hearing can submit written testimony at the transition team’s website (http://www.harptransition.com/) or sent your thoughts to the Harp Transition Team, P.O. Box 3308 Westville Station, New Haven, CT  06515.
