This web page shows maps of blighted properties in the south end of Hartford. It is a result of a collaboration between Hartford Areas Rally Together (HART), faculty and students at Trinity College, and the Trinfo.Cafe. Currently, HART is working with city officials from the Mayor's Office, Department of Development Services, and Licenses & Inspections to enforce the new blight ordinance, which enforces fines on landlords who fail to properly maintain their property. While detracting from the aesthetic value of Hartford, blighted and abandoned buildings also decrease property values, lure drug dealers and crime, and leave the city without crucial tax income. The purpose of these maps is to link blighted buildings in the south end of Hartford directly to their owners. There are four maps of the four neighborhoods in the south end Hartford: Frog Hollow, Barry Square, Behind the Rocks and South End.
