It adds beauty to the city, it's commemorates the history of Hartford, it's relative inexpensive, a great idea all around.

No word on whether Eddie Perez will block the project unless union gardeners are used for all work.

:rofl: The Garden is a great idea. I see this happening with relatively little controversy. But who know's this is Hartford....

This idea has been kicking around for a while and was part of the prior developer's plans for the Colt Building.

I agree - its a great idea.

I think this is one idea that will actually happen. There is a website in place already http://www.hartfordbotanicalgarden.org/

The beginning of that article is a good example of why city councils are so irritating. 'Formed in 1998'...get a move on already!

City planning is important and costly and shouldn't be rushed...but good grief. Not Hartford specifically...everywhere is like that. Sometimes I'll be walking around my town and I'll see a notice posted for a public meeting about something that's been met about for ten years.

Great idea - the City of Hartford needs to milk the fact that it is the birthplace of Frederick Law Olmsted, the father of landscape architecture. This is one way to do it.

Good idea - BUT, what if they converted all of the open space on Constitution Plaza, all the way down to the river, into one? That would give people a reason every day to make their way down to the riverfront? The walkway itself would become a destination!
