Residents and members of Hartford’s business community who were appointed to an advisory panel that reviewed bids for a major development project north of downtown were required to sign non-disclosure agreements prior to their participation.
The panel of eight met Thursday with top city development officials, including Thomas Deller, the director of development services, who said he selected the members. The group heard from the three developers who submitted plans for housing, retail space and a minor league ballpark in the Downtown North area.
Panelists were David Panagore, the acting director of the New Haven Parking Authority and former Hartford chief operating officer; David Jorgensen, a partner with Jorgensen Group at Morgan Stanley; Bea Powell, chairwoman of Clay Arsenal Neighborhood Revitalization Zone group; Patricia Williams, vice president of Upper Albany Neighborhood Collaborative; Edward Casares, the city’s former fire chief; Darrell Hill, Hartford’s chief operating officer; John Motley, chairman of Hartford school building committee; and Julio Concepcion, vice president of Hartford partnerships for the MetroHartford Alliance.
The group considered the proposals and offered feedback to city officials on what would best suit the neighborhood.
