The community meeting to discussion the Albany Avenue streetscape has been reschedule for February 21, 2013. The original meeting was canceled because of snow.
This will take place at the Artists’ Collective (1200 Albany Ave) from 5:30-7:30pm. All are welcome.
Trinity Street in downtown has been plowed several times. Residents in some neighborhoods are still waiting for one plow.

Streets described as not “open,” with open being defined “as the plow opening up the middle of road” were posted by residents on the Hartford Fire Department’s Facebook page.
