A Message from the Mayor's Office:
Stamford Social Security Office to Suspend Service to the Public
On July 19, 2013 the Stamford Social Security office located at Two Landmark Square in Stamford will suspend walk in service to the public.
Social Security will suspend walk-in service to the public for approximately two months to complete office repairs. Employees who work out of the Stamford office will work in neighboring Social Security field offices located in New Haven, Danbury, and Bridgeport to process the Stamford casework. Members of the public can access the agency website for contact information on these offices.
Residents who wish to conduct business with SSA will have several options available to them. These Include:
- Accessing the agency’s newly redesigned website at: www.socialsecurity.gov,
- Using the national, toll-free telephone number, 1-800-772-1213, or
- Visiting or calling other offices in the state of Connecticut.
Among the many services and information available online at www.socialsecurity.gov are:
filing for retirement, disability and/or spouse’s benefits;
checking the status of a benefit application;
changing an address and/or phone number, if you receive monthly benefits;
signing up for direct deposit of Social Security benefits.
Thank you to all who joined us for the Annual Spring Cleanup
And a special "Thank You" to the generous volunteers from Backyard Humanitarian (www.backyardhumanitarian.org)!

New Stamford Emergency Notification System - "Stamford Alert"
Stamford has launched a new emergency notification system that will allow the City to quickly deliver alert messages via text, phone and/or email, to specific areas or the entire City.
The system allows individuals and businesses to add and update their own contact information, which is password protected, directly into the system’s database. Mayor Pavia encourages all residents and businesses to regitster. If you had previously registered in the old database, you should now register in this current program to ensure you are included.
To register, log onto the City of Stamford website at www.cityofstamford.org. There is a Stamford Alert link on the main page. On the final page, be sure to scroll down to the bottom to edit any of the information and to find the Submit button. You can also send test calls to your phone numbers.
Military Bulletin Board
Stamford’s new Postmaster, Andrea Dallas, has approved the installation of a bulletin board in the Springdale Post Office honoring all past and present military members from Springdale. If you know someone in the military, and would like to have their picture posted, please leave it at the Springdale Post Office counter (attention: Lisa Landone, Customer Relations Coordinator).
Please spread the word on this great opportunity to pay tribute to the members of our military!
Train Station Canopy Construction
The train station canopy project, which started in March 2010, is now complete as scheduled! As our many train commuters know, the station has been improved drastically. Below are just a couple of pictures showing the new Springdale Station.
Sidewalk Complaints & Improvements
If you know of a sidewalk that is in disrepair and needs to be fixed, please be sure to call the City's Citizens Service office at (203) 977-4140 or visit the Citizens Service website. Calls from residents are the best way to bring the City's attention to those sidewalks most in need of repair.
