Greetings to my friends and neighbors in Asylum Hill!
By State Rep. Matt Ritter
2021 is here and we are ready for a new year and a new legislative session. I am very proud that my colleagues in the House of Representatives have chosen me to be Speaker of the House after four years as House Majority Leader.
For those of you who have been to the AHNA website most anytime in the past few years you have no doubt noticed that the basic design hasn't changed in a lot of years, and also that it's not the most modern or user friendly. It's not that we are ignoring it; it's just that we really haven't had the band width or skills to fix it.
When we left off last month we noted that there are fewer than 100 single family, owner-occupied brick Victorian homes remaining in Asylum Hill. That is less than a quarter of the more than 400 such homes that are shown on the Sanborn map from 1920.
