The Mission of the Asylum Hill Neighborhood Association is to serve as the umbrella organization that empowers residents and supports connection and collaborations among all stakeholders to improve the quality of life in our neighborhood.
As a Hartford NRZ, we strive to involve all those who live, work, worship or own property in Asylum Hill to help improve the quality of life for all of us. The Association is active and effective because of its many committed volunteers. We meet once a month and are proud to have open, well-attended meetings that seek to inform and to support residents of the Asylum Hill neighborhood. AHNA is a strong advocate for responsible development and single-minded in preserving its historical heritage.
In the past three years, AHNA has taken a stand on many important issues including: identifying a new site for the Mark Twain Library, lobbying for the demolition of a blighted building near I-84, and securing the Community School designation for West Middle School.
