About Us

Who we are
The New Haven Urban Design League was founded by citizens devoted to protecting and enhancing New Haven’s natural assets and urban design through research, education, and advocacy. The League works to improve the quality of life in New Haven by supporting projects that sustain the culture, beauty, utility, and economic health of the city — both in its neighborhoods and in its region. The League seeks to strengthen the civic culture that is the foundation for good government, good planning, and good development.

What we do

Today, the city faces great challenges – New Haven’s future depends on a public, engaged and equipped with the knowledge and resources necessary to promote good design and planning. The League works with neighborhood groups, businesses, elected officials, and government agencies to make the city a better place to live.

The New Haven Urban Design League is a 501(c)(3) Public Charity.
