Hello everyone! My name is Manuel Camacho and I live here in Fair Haven for several years. I am the chair of the New Haven YCL, Youth President of Ice The Beef Organization, and President of Ice The Beef's Latino Caucus. You may have heard about the event that happened over at Columbus Family Academy on Aug. 21st. It was the event where there was Covid testing and 430 backpacks were given out to the community. I was the organizer of that event which served as the debut of my Latino Caucus in the Fair Haven Community. I am honored to be here and if anyone has any questions, feel free to send me an email at mannycamacho122704@gmail.com

To celebrate the trail and introduce it to the public, the City Plan Department is organizing a walking tour from Chapel St to The District.The purpose of the walk is to talk about the Fair Haven neighborhood's connection to the river, current environmental justice issues, and how the MRT could benefit the community. This event will also allow the community and the city to experiment with walks as a communication channel and examine possibilities to incorporate it in planning processes.The walk open to the public, pre-registration recommended. The walk will start at 5:30, we will meet at the corner of Chapel St. &James St. Masks, snacks, and a fun activity for kids would be offered.For questions, please contact Maya Vardi: mvardi@newhavenct.gov, 203-946-5128
