RPA's Connecticut office promotes smart and efficient land use practices, sound environmental policies and economic development that is connected to the transit network.

Our mission is to encourage long-range, inter-municipal planning that allows communities across the state to continue to grow and prosper while maintaining their quality of life. With an independent, regional perspective, RPA works to make Connecticut more competitive, fair and sustainable. We emphasize stimulating informed public debate and building coalitions around practical solutions.

Our recent initiatives include BGreen2020, Bridgeport's 10-year community sustainability initiative; transit-oriented development planning projects in Fairfield, Bridgeport and Stamford; and work to promote economic and social benefits from proposed transit projects in the Greater Hartford region.
