New Haven Mayor Issues State of Emergency

New Haven Mayor Issues State of Emergency, Limits City Hall Operations,

Announces Second Resident Confirmed with COVID-19

Given the growing spread of this virus in our city, state, and country, I am declaring a state of emergency in the City of New Haven to protect the public health of our residents. I have also made the decision to close City Hall to the public tomorrow, and indefinitely. We are curtailing all activities except critical functions until further notice. City employees that are not critical to operations will be notified that they should not report to work. Over the next several days, our team will be evaluating our employee safety and operations protocol, in addition to increasing options for teleworking where possible. If you are a member of the business community, I strongly encourage you to have only essential employees report to work, provide options for employees to telework and do what you can to support paid leave and reduce any chance of further spread of COVID-19.

The Green Park Permit program has not been renewed

Green Park Permit

The Green Park Permit program has not been renewed for the fiscal year starting July 1, 2020.

Created several years ago as a short-term incentive program, the Green Park Permit was then an innovative way to affect carbon emissions at the local level. Since this time, global carbon emissions have only continued to rise, and transportation policies have expanded beyond personal vehicle emissions reduction as a primary strategy to combat climate change.

The City looks forward to working with our institutional partners and residents on finding increasingly impactful ways to mitigate the climate crisis.”
