It’s time to make a plan.
A city plan is a written document that sets forth our aspirations for our community.

We do a new plan once every 10 years. Our City Plan in 2010 was called “One City, One Plan.” 

Our new City Plan’s tagline is Hartford400. The tagline came from iQuilt, which is convening a regional planning effort. Our City Plan will be the FIRST Hartford400 plan. Other cities and institutions will follow.

The first draft of the City Plan is now available. Read it, and share your feedback at one of the upcoming City Plan meetings or by email.

Parts of the Plan

Our plan will be divided into five parts, each encompassing different but overlapping aspects of city life.  Overall, ideas in the plan will work to break down barriers, create connections, attract people, improve opportunity, and make our city fun (yes, fun!).
