New London invites public to discuss possible cultural district

New London — The city, in partnership with the Southeastern Connecticut Cultural Coalition, will host a series of three virtual community conversations to discuss the formation of a cultural district.

The first will take place at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 21. Others are scheduled for Feb. 4 and Feb. 18.

The Zoom meeting can be accessed at; meeting ID is 815 4334 5164, and the passcode is 415810.

The ability for a municipality to create a cultural district was established by state statute to establish a walkable, compact area that is easy for visitors to recognize; a center of artistic and economic cultural activities; and a place in a city or town where residents congregate and visitors may enjoy those places that make a community special.

Anyone with questions is encouraged to contact City Planner Sybil Tetteh at and to attend any of the meetings. Visit or email Wendy Bury at for more information.
