May 2016 Update

Ah, spring, a time of renewal. Especially for a certain stretch of Capitol Avenue. The MDC recently shared a flyer stating that "lateral (pipe connection from [individual properties] to the new mainline) work will occur next week and the final restoration of sidewalks and road pavement will follow."

Speaking of renewal, with our Annual Meeting approaching, we have some NRZ Board members whose terms are up for re-election and some vacant spots. Specifically, we are looking for a Social Services representative and a Property Owner. If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about , please email
Our next meeting is Wednesday, May 18, 6 pm. Please note this month's meeting location is Holy Trinity Church (see blue box below). We hope to have updates on the Hartford Decide$ SoDo Community Garden Project and the basketball courts at Ramon Quiros Park on Hudson Street.
The South Downtown NRZ is always looking for more SoDo residents, property owners and business owners to get involved in the NRZ. If you are interested in one of our open Board positions, volunteering for a project, or serving on a committee, please email
