Thanks to all who participated in the Hartford Decide$ vote that ended on June 29, 2021. We had five amazing projects on the ballot.
2021 WINNING PROJECTS
Wallace Stevens Bridge Sidewalk Repairs
This project will repair the damaged sidewalks on this Asylum Avenue Bridge over the Park River between Woodland and Elizabeth Streets. These sidewalks are on a heavily-used pedestrian thoroughfare which connects Hartford’s Asylum Hill and the West End. Plaques will also be installed in honor of Hartford poet Wallace Stevens [1879–1955]. This bridge forms a critical pathway along “The Wallace Stevens Walk”, which follows Stevens’ daily route from his workplace at the Hartford Accident & Indemnity Company (“The Hartford”) to his home on Westerly Terrace.
Tree Beautification for Schools
Knox Parks will plant 25-30 long-lived trees in coordination with the City Forester at these five Hartford Public Schools: America's Choice at SAND, Bulkeley High School, Global Communications Academy, Noah Webster Magnet School & Thirman L. Milner School. These schools were identified by the City Forester as having the greatest need for new tree plantings. These trees will all have a three-year warranty.
