HARTFORD — Hartford officials will host a crash course on the basics of zoning at the Hartford Public Library on Feb. 26.
The event, which is expected to take a look at how the city determines what buildings and businesses can be built in different areas of the city and has a significant impact on how Hartford grows and changes, is slated for at 6 p.m. at 550 Main St. in downtown Hartford.
According to officials, more than 500 zoning applications are filed each year.
“Understanding how zoning works is critical in helping to make Hartford the city we all want it to be,” Segarra said. “It can protect neighborhood & community character, encourage growing business sectors, or dedicate underused land to new purposes.”
“This will be a great opportunity for Hartford residents, both renters and homeowners, to learn why zoning is so important,” said Jackie McKinney, Co-Chair of Hartford 2000.
Long-time Hartford activist Bernadine Silvers, Hartford 2000 Co-Chair said that understanding zoning empowers you to make economic and design changes in your community.”
