Mayor Segarra is joined by community leaders at ceremonial ribbon-cutting of new Tower Avenue sidewalk
This post will be shorton my commentary as I am actually posting it from my hospital room at mt sinai rehab. this story shows the priorities of the segarra administration. while homicide victims are piling up in the streets, even outpacing boston, 4 times hartford's population. pedro segarra is cutting ceremonial ribbons for a new  sidewalk. it must be an election year




(July 10, 2015) Today, Mayor Pedro E. Segarra was joined by members of the Northeast Revitalization Association, the Blue Hills Neighborhood Revitalization Zone (NRZ), the Upper Albany NRZ, the North End Senior Center and Friends of Keney Park at a ceremonial ribbon-cutting for a newly-installed sidewalk on the north side of Tower Avenue. The sidewalk was installed in the winter and spring on a 3,000-foot stretch of road between Barbour Street and Mayfair Road that previously did not have a sidewalk. The City invested $380,000 in the project.


“Tower Avenue is a busy street and the new sidewalk makes it more accessible to pedestrians walking through Keney Park,” said Mayor Segarra. “I want to thank all the community groups who advocated for and supported this project. This is an example of what can happen when the community and the City come together to make change.”


“This new sidewalk is not just about safety, it is also about promoting the beauty of the park inside and out,” said Henry Hester, Vice President of Friends of Keney Park.


"There are very few things more important to our seniors than public safety and this new walkway has addressed one of them. I am very thankful that Mayor Segarra signed off on this project to be completed because we love our seniors and want them to be safe,” said Evelyn R. Richardson, representing the Northeast Revitalization Association.


“Public Safety has always been a passion of mine and I am happy that Mayor Segarra has listened to the community, especially the seniors, by completing the sidewalk on Tower Avenue,” said Donna Thompson-Daniel of the Blue Hills NRZ
