New Haven residents, businesses and organizations will be gathering at the state Capitol for the annual New Haven Day event.
City residents and Mayor John DeStefano Jr. will have an opportunity to discuss issues that are important to their community during Wednesday's early afternoon event.
DeStefano is expected to advocate for red light traffic cameras, local economic development projects and funding for the Youth @ Work program, which provides employment opportunities to certain New Haven teenagers and young adults.
New Haven organizations also will host information tables and the city will hand out its signature pizza at the event.
