Thanks to NBC 30 for covering our recent meeting and highlighting our downtown mural project!
Susmitha Attota of the City Plan Department went to many
community management teams this year talking about New Haven’s
Comprehensive Plan. It guides the city’s priorities for the next 10 years.
Based on the feedback received from all CMTs regarding the planning issues
pertaining to the City’s Comprehensive Plan update, the City Plan
Department developed an online survey. This survey helps to prioritize the
diverse issues heard from residents and also to better understand the
missing links at present with respect to transportation, jobs, land use,
The links to take the survey in both English and Spanish languages are
This survey will remain open from now until Aug 19.

Just one of many scenes from New Haven’s International Festival of Arts and Ideas. Now that the festival is over the New Haven Green might be a little less crowded, but it won’t be any less beautiful.
In 1974, a group of students banded together to form the Yale Summer Cabaret and performed, in one summer season, seventeen plays that included Molière, Shakespeare, and then-current students Wendy Wasserstein and Christopher Durang.
The 2013 Yale Cabaret’s SUMMER OF GIANTS embraces the spirit of those first years by offering an ambitious variety of different theatrical offerings written by some of the greatest playwrights of our time.
Check out show descriptions and times on the Yale Summer Cabaret website: summercabaret.com.
