Mayor Luke Bronin Leads Town Meeting on North Hartford's Promise Zone

On Saturday October 29 Mayor Luke Bronin will facilitate a town hall meeting about North Hartford's Promise Zone.

North Hartford's Promise Zone consists of a 3.11 square-mile area encompassing the Clay Arsenal, Northeast and Upper Albany neighborhoods. Hartford is the first City in Connecticut to take part in this competitive initiative created by President Barack Obama. In his 2013 State of the Union Address, President Obama announced that he would designate 20 Promise Zones nationwide; high poverty communities that would partner with the Administration to create jobs, increase economic activity, improve educational opportunities, reduce violent crime and improve health outcomes.
