Culture more vibrant

Our City Plan survey asked 900 people about Hartford’s greatest strength.  The surprising answer of 2/3 of respondents?  Arts, culture, and diversity.  We’ve got to cultivate our identity as the accessible, vibrant cultural capital of New England.

We must listen to and tell the story of Hartford’s complex and unique past encompassing 400 years.  And we must connect people across four seasons through sports, parks, arts, history, and nightlife.

Thank you for all of your ideas and proposals to address these issues.  We successfully adopted the plan in May 2020, after input from 2,200 people and more then 50 meetings!  Now we have to implement it!
