HARTFORD PARKING BAN LIFTED AT NOON TODAY

HARTFORD PARKING BAN LIFTED AT NOON TODAY

 

HARTFORD, CONN. (January 17, 2018) – Mayor Luke Bronin announced that the snow parking ban will end at noon today, Wednesday, January 17th.  The ban was originally scheduled to end at 9 PM today, January 17th.  The City has received approximately 4 inches of snow and, according to the latest forecasts, does not expect to see any more significant accumulation today.  

 

City plows will continue to clear snow and slush from the roads as needed in the afternoon.  Ordinarily after parking bans residents have 2 hours to remove cars from Hartford Public Schools lots and 6 hours to remove cars from Blue Light Lots, but given the change in this parking ban, the City will stick to the schedule announced yesterday in terms of towing and ticketing after the ban ends.  Residents still have until 11 PM tonight to remove cars from Hartford Public Schools lots and until 3 AM, Thursday, January 18th, to remove cars from Blue Light Lots.

TOMORROW AT 8 AM: MAYOR BRONIN ACTIVATES PARKING BAN UNTIL 9 PM WEDNESDAY

TOMORROW AT 8 AM: MAYOR BRONIN ACTIVATES PARKING BAN UNTIL 9 PM WEDNESDAY

HARTFORD, CONN. (January 16, 2018) – Mayor Luke Bronin has activated a snow parking ban for the City of Hartford, beginning at 8 A.M. on Wednesday, January 17th and ending at 9 P.M. on Wednesday, January 17th.

“At this point we expect to get between 3 and 6 inches of snow tomorrow, with the heaviest snowfall beginning early Wednesday morning and continuing into the afternoon,” said Mayor Bronin. “Residents should feel free to take advantage of the Blue Light Lots and move their cars there this evening.  We recognize that ending the parking ban tomorrow evening may be inconvenient for some people, but we’re trying to avoid extending the parking ban to Thursday morning so that Hartford Public Schools can be open on Thursday.  It is essential that all residents and visitors respect the parking ban so that our Public Works team can work quickly and safely.”

During a snow parking ban, all on-street parking is prohibited throughout the City of Hartford. Any vehicles not removed from City streets by the start of the parking ban will be ticketed and towed.  Residents without access to off-street parking may move their vehicles to one of the authorized parking areas including Blue Light Lots, City Parks, Recreation and Senior Centers, and Hartford Public Schools parking lots by the start of the parking ban at 8 A.M. on Wednesday, January 17th.

To notify the public a parking ban is in effect, sixteen major intersections will be illuminated with blue light beginning 6 hours before the parking ban and they will remain illuminated throughout the duration of the parking ban. 

Eleven Blue Light Lots are dedicated solely for use during snow parking bans.  These designated Blue Light Lots will provide more parking options for residents who do not have access to off-street parking.  

Vehicles must be removed from City Blue Light Lots within six hours after the snow parking ban has been lifted.  Vehicles must be removed from Hartford Public Schools lots within two hours.

Mayor Bronin also encouraged residents to sign up to receive alerts from the City of Hartford by registering online at http://www.hartford.gov/emergency-services. “We encourage residents to sign up for these alerts so that they can get timely, important information about what’s happening in the City – including parking bans.  We’re not going to overuse this alert system, and you can always decide to unsubscribe.”

MAYOR BRONIN URGES STATE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF NEW TAX LAW, NOMINATES HARTFORD NEIGHBORHOODS

MAYOR BRONIN URGES STATE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF NEW TAX LAW, NOMINATES HARTFORD NEIGHBORHOODS

HARTFORD, CONN (January 9, 2018) – Yesterday Mayor Luke Bronin asked the State to nominate most Hartford neighborhoods for designation as Opportunity Zones under a provision in the omnibus tax law recently enacted by the federal government.  The law included the bipartisan Investing in Opportunity Act, which allows governors to designate Opportunity Zones where private investment will receive preferential federal tax treatment. In a letter to the State, Mayor Bronin identified 37 of 40 Hartford census tracts eligible for designation as Opportunity Zones, and urged the Governor to nominate the Hartford neighborhoods prior to the March deadline.

“Last month the federal government enacted an omnibus tax law that benefits the nation’s highest income earners at the expense of the middle class and residents of many states, including Connecticut,” said Mayor Bronin in his letter to the Governor.  “Despite the long-term damage that tax bill will do to our state and nation, one provision, the bipartisan Investing in Opportunity in Opportunity Act, could provide an opportunity to spur private investment in long-disadvantaged communities in the Capital City.”

In a separate statement, Bronin added, “The Investing in Opportunity Act gives tax benefits for investing in communities like Hartford, and we should move aggressively to seize and promote that opportunity.”

The Investing in Opportunity Act, supported by Democrats and Republicans, is aimed at revitalizing economically distressed communities by allowing investors to defer capital gains taxes if they invest in state-designated Opportunity Zones.  A fact sheet on the Act by Senators Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Tim Scott (R-SC), and Representatives Ron Kind (D-WI) and Pat Tiberi (R-OH), is available here.
