Connecticut's First SmartCode Town - Hamden

Hamden, Connecticut's SmartCode developed by Town Planner, Leslie Creane, Urban Planner, Robert Orr & Associates, and Fisher Town Design is based on a four day charrette in late October 2007 that showed how the town could accommodate economic development while handling traffic better and enhancing existing neighborhoods and business districts, the Hamden SmartCode focuses on rezoning several of the town’s existing commercial areas to accommodate mixed uses and more intense development.
