The Hartford Redevelopment Agency (HRA) establishes and manages Redevelopment Plans. 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 plan. HRA currently manages over eighteen Redevelopment Plans throughout the city.
Neighborhood Development efforts center on providing assistance to developers and neighborhood groups to ensure that blighted and underutilized properties are renovated and put back to productive reuse. In addition to providing technical assistance with business plans and attracting financing to projects, staff works to develop productive relationships between developers and community stakeholders.
