Governor Dannel P. Malloy yesterday announced that
the city of Waterbury will receive the following grants:
- Waterbury and the Waterbury Development Corporation
will receive a $780,000 grant which is gap financing to
help complete remediation and demolition work at the
Washington Avenue Business Park, the site of a
future mixed-use development.
- Waterbury will also receive an additional $2,000,000 grant
to help the Waterbury Development Corporation with site
remediation after a fire at 313 Mill Street, the Mad River
Development site across from the Anamet remediation project.
“In towns and cities throughout Connecticut there are blighted
and vacant properties that could be brought back to productive
use and boost economic growth,” said Governor Malloy.
“These funds will have immediate impact for the
municipalities—allowing them to pursue community revitalization.
Cleaning up pollution and restoring these sites is a fundamental
part of strengthening our economy,” said Gov. Malloy in a statement.
