Hartford Awards for Small Town Economic Assistance Program

Last month Hartford announced approval for fifteen towns throughout Connecticut to receive funding under the state’s Small Town Economic Assistance Program (STEAP). This program initiative will assist smaller communities with infrastructure and capital improvement projects. The grants announced today are the first of several rounds anticipated to be announced during this year. A few of the Cities were allotted funding are Willington, Marlborough and Bozrah. Each town will receive 500,000. Willington plan drainage improvements and resurfacing of Turnpike Road. The project will include resurfacing and drainage work on sections of the Turnpike Road in Willington. Turnpike Road has deteriorated as a result of the reoccurring damage of each winter storm. Drainage and resurfacing will bring safer, more reliable access to thousands of residents and commuters seeking to connect to I84 and the FedEx Distribution Center located in the town of Willington.

Marlborough’s funding will go toward the Town Center Water System. The project will aid in economic development of the Town Center by increasing daily water storage by 30,000 gallons to meet potential commercial demand. Increased capacity will reduce the cost to new business by eliminating the need to develop wells and will also remove the uncertainty of water supply for future economic growth. The town of Bozrah plans to use their award for the wastewater collection system.  The funding will be utilized to provide detailed engineering and design work for the sanitary sewer collection system within the current industrial park and the village district.  The availability of wastewater treatment capacity can significantly heighten the development potential and employment possibilities in the local community.
