WEST HAVEN, Feb. 22, 2019 — Mayor Nancy R. Rossi announced that The Haven Group LLC has engaged a security company to monitor The Haven. The company will provide security at the development site as a result of the recent fires.

For the past four nights and until Sunday when the security company is on-site, the West Haven Police Department has sent officers to monitor the site at the developer’s expense.

The city is not paying for the additional officers, Rossi said.

The West Haven Fire Department, the fire marshal and the Building Department have been inspecting the properties and will issue a report to the city.

“The investigations are ongoing, but it is believed that the first fire is undetermined at this point and that the second fire (Bilco) was intentionally set,” Rossi said. “The city will also do what is necessary to keep the site safe.”

The mayor said she appreciates the cooperation and assistance from the fire department, the fire marshal, the Police Department, the City Council chairman and the City Council and all relevant city agencies in addressing the current public safety concerns.

Rossi also thanked the surrounding cities that provided mutual aid during the two fires.

The city will soon begin the street closure process for The Haven project, which is required as part of its development agreement with The Haven Group and may make the project more secure, the mayor said.
