Eminent Domain in Connecticut | A House Divided
During the almost decade-long fight over the future of the neighborhood, the city’s fortunes have not changed much. Plans still call for a museum, a hotel, and housing in the currently bleak and dusty Fort, but whether they will materialize remains to be seen. In the meantime, as part of the state’s $73 million investment, the city has made major improvements to the area’s infrastructure: new water and sewer lines, street lamps, and underground utilities. New roads too — wide boulevards with generous sidewalks — most of which so far lead nowhere, in wait of what will come.
