It is the intent of this ordinance to promote the educational, cultural, economic, and general welfare of the Town of East Hartford through the preservation and protection of buildings, places and districts of historic interest within the Town of East Hartford; and to preserve and protect the many architectural phases of a Connecticut River Community in continual growth.

The Historic District Commission meets the 1st Monday of every month in Town Hall.  Please check the Community Calendar on the website's Home page for any updated changes in the meeting times or dates.   Please note that meetings are called at the discretion of the Chairperson of the Commission.
