MIDDLETOWN INCLUDED IN BROWNFIELDS GRANT



MIDDLETOWN INCLUDED IN BROWNFIELDS GRANT
Building To Get New Life


Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has announced $7.9 million in grants for brownfield remediation.  State Rep. Matthew L. Lesser (D-Middletown) says the grant includes $825,000 for Middletown.  The money will be used for abatement and remediation of an abandoned mill at 27 Stack Street.  The building will then be converted into affordable housing.

“This funding helps Middletown recover an historic property,” said Rep. Lesser.  “When the remediation is complete, the building on Stack Street will provide quality housing for the city.  It also increases property values in the neighborhood and adds to the city’s grand list.  I want to thank the Governor for his efforts in getting this done.”

The grant, from the Department of Economic and Community Development, is being spread across 14 cities and towns and will redevelop 187 acres.
