Manchester Prairie Project Area

Issues related to economic deterioration, improper and irregular lot shapes, inadequate parking, provision of public facilities and improvements to support residential neighborhoods, and obsolete land use patterns created the need to establish the Manchester Prairie Redevelopment Project Area. The Project Area was adopted in December of 1972 and was subsequently amended three times.

The Project Area comprises approximately 200 acres of land and contains a mix of residential, commercial, and institutional land uses. It is generally surrounded by Manchester Boulevard (north), Prairie Avenue (east), Hardy Street (south), and Myrtle and Larch Streets (west).
