City Transformation Plan


Working together we have the opportunity to transform our City into a City of Opportunity for all residents. We know what needs to be done —we just need the will to do it.


— Toni N. Harp, Mayor, City of New Haven



Mayor Toni Harp has called upon the residents of New Haven and New Haven's community partners to build a comprehensive City Transformation Plan (CTP). This plan aims to expand economic opportunity for residents, position New Haven's children for lifelong success, and create safe, healthy, and vibrant neighborhoods. This process builds on the work we did in Fall 2014 to apply for a federal Promise Zone designation, which brought together 67 organizations, community partners, and city agencies to target the eight sectors listed below. The City Transformation Plan aligns the efforts of the city's many agencies, nonprofit organizations, and community partners under three core themes: coordination and integration, equity, and continued learning. Over the next five years, the CTP sets a course to guide the policies, practices, and changes we will make to transform New Haven into an equitable, inclusive, and safe city.

Community Data Dashboard
The City has partnered with DataHaven to create an online dashboard that makes tracking progress on key indicators of wellbeing and performance easy and transparent. The dashboard includes initial indicators and performance measures for all eight CTP platforms, as well as strategy-specific data.

Suggestions are welcome on indicators you would like to see included, presentation of the indicators, or the design of the dashboard.  Email
