As New Haven moves into a new era with rapid growth and intensive development across multiple neighborhoods, the work of the New Haven Urban Design League is more critical than ever. For a limited time, all contributions to the League will be matched — your support can help to sustain us through 2023.

Some of our current projects and areas of focus include:

  • Seeking a full remediation, and preservation, of English Station
  •  Advocacy for a state transportation plan that prioritizes transit and supports transit-oriented development
  • Advocacy for an update to the City’s Plan of Conservation and Development consistent with principles of good planning and environmental sustainability
  •  Advocacy for a robust plan for transit-oriented development at New Haven Union Station
  •  Advocacy for policies that will create and sustain high-quality affordable housing
  •  Pursuit of a preservation ordinance as part of sensible zoning reform
