Redevelopment and Neighborhood Services

 The Hartford Redevelopment Agency (HRA) establishes and manages Redevelopment Plans as means of eliminating blight and spurring investment in the city. To meet the goals for each plan, the HRA may purchase targeted properties through negotiated acquisitions or through the use of eminent domain. Following acquisition, properties are sold and redeveloped in accordance with the stated goals and objectives of each Plan.

The following are links to several recently approved Redevelopment Plans:
