Farr Associates is leading the ZoneHartford zoning rewrite for the City of Hartford to update their current regulations that date to 1969. The new regulations will reflect the City’s current goals for encouraging economic development, enhancing mixed use neighborhoods, and increasing walkability and transit choice. While the rewrite is a citywide effort, the project focuses on Hartford’s transportation corridors and the surrounding areas, as these are the best locations to encourage new, walkable development in proximity to a variety of transit options. Additionally, these regulations will place a larger emphasis on building form rather than solely focusing on the separation of uses.  This will help to ensure that the built form matches the community’s vision.
