Overview

The panel will discuss their efforts with the planning, design and strategic implementation of the “New Long Wharf”, a series of interrelated strategies to advance the responsible growth of this important business district. The goal is to support the social and economic development of the Long Wharf District through strategic focus on coastal resiliency, progressive economic strategies and community engagement -with assistance from Long Wharf’s thriving business community and residents of the Hill neighborhood.  This project is part of a larger grant from the State of Connecticut’s OPM to improve the Long Wharf District. Work already completed in the district via the grant include the state’s first cycle track and improvements to Long Wharf Drive’s 30-truck “Food Truck Paradise” area.
