Hartford turns 400 in 2035.
What can we accomplish between now and then?

What is hartford400?​

Hartford400 is a coalition of the region’s major organizations, convened by The iQuilt Partnership, working together to forge a comprehensive, river-centered vision and action plan for the valley and its capital city, one that integrates our environmental, economic, social, transportation, and cultural aspirations.

“An excellent plan for the heart of Hartford, envisioning unifying and livable strategies. It reimagines the next generation of cities. It solves the problems of the previous generation of urban planning. It aggregates a number of moves: it removes elevated freeways, connects to the river, and creates a linear park. As the design is realized, it needs to consider how to connect to the urban fabric and make sure that the people that inhabit the adjacent area can remain.”
