    Office Of The Mayor
    Dear Friends

    This week, I was proud to announce that the City of New Haven has launched a new benefit for all City residents: the New Haven Prescription Discount Card. The New Haven Prescription Discount Card will be made available to residents at no cost (to the City or to residents) and without regard to age, income, health and health insurance status. The card provides an average of 45% savings on prescriptions as well as savings on vision and hearing care.

    Over the next couple of weeks, each residence in New Haven will receive a City of New Haven Prescription Discount Card by direct mail, which they may use at any participating retail pharmacy.

    Cards can also be printed out immediately by visiting www.CTRxDiscountCard.comand and selecting New Haven from the drop-down menu. The New Haven Prescription Discount Card is currently accepted at 22 pharmacies in New Haven and 646 pharmacies statewide, with more pharmacies expected to sign on.

    For more information on the card, please click here.

    The Boat House at Canal Dock

    On Monday, the City of New Haven broke ground on the Boat House at Canal Dock. Of the many improvements that we’ve made in New Haven, this latest one holds special significance. For over five decades--since the construction of Interstate 95 along New Haven’s harbor—our city has been cut off from one of its greatest natural resources, the New Haven Harbor. The construction of the Boathouse at Canal Dock takes steps to remedy that and will provide residents and visitors to New Haven the opportunity to enjoy the harbor and water recreation.

    The Boathouse at Canal Dock will be used for public access to the waterfront, for boating access and to tell the story of New Haven’s natural and cultural environment, of the Harbor, and for recreational programs. It will provide a central facility in New Haven for water recreation including youth rowing programs, public boating programs, and marine education programs and exhibits.

    The construction of the Boathouse at Canal Dock will be completely funded by the federal and state government as mitigation for the loss of a historic structure, the Adee boathouse, which was built 1914 and demolished 2009 to allow for the construction of the new Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge.

    Next Hill-to-Downtown Meeting to be held on September 25th

    Residents are invited to the next Hill-to-Downtown meeting, which will be held on Wednesday, September 25th, at 6:30 pm at the Hill Central School.

    At this meeting, the City’s planning team and consultants will present the Draft Master Plan framework for the future of this district and will provide another opportunity for community input as efforts continue to shape a plan for the district.
