Meeting Tomorrow On Hartford Development, Stadium

(Hartford, Conn./CBS Connecticut) – Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra is calling a special meeting of the City Council for Thursday night to discuss receive, and refer to committee and public hearing development plans for the area of the city commonly known as Downtown North.

In a letter to Council President Shawn Wooden dated Tuesday, Segarra recommends a transfer of 19 properties to DoNo Hartford LLC for a dollar apiece for mixed use development, including a new home for the minor league New Britain Rock Cats.

It would be a 25-year agreement in which the city would lease back the ballpark, then sublease the facility to the club.

The ball club’s rental payment would be $500,000 for the first 15 years, escalating to $600,000 for the remainder of the agreement.

Tomorrow night’s meeting gets underway at 6 p.m. from Hartford City Hall.
