On June 15, 2012 the Connecticut General Assembly officially established the Capital Region Development Authority, (CRDA), replacing the quasi-public enitity formerly known as the Capital City Economic Development Authority, (CCEDA).
Public Act 12-147 not only re-designates CCEDA as CRDA, but it also allows the new Authority the same powers as CCEDA to plan and implement specified Capital district projects. The Act also expands the original CCEDA district and permits CRDA to plan and implement some of these projects outside of the district.
The Capital Region Development Authority's 13-member board includes the mayors of Hartford and East Hartford with the Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner, OPM Secretary and the Department of Transportation Commissioner serving as Ex-officio members. wo appointees of the Mayor of Hartford, (a city employee and a city resident), one from the legislative minority leadership, one from the legislative majority leadership and four gubernatorial appointments round out the rest of the board. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
