What Lurks below the Surface? Connecticut's Brownfield, Waterfront and TOD Development Initiative

Tuesday, March 10, 2015* 

Over the past several years, the State of Connecticut has been actively funding the remediation of old industrial sites for reuse as commercial, residential, retail, and open space.  Come hear about the CT Department of Economic and Community Development’s Brownfields, Waterfront, and Transit-Oriented Development Program and what it has been doing to improve our State’s economy and reputation as a leader in Brownfield redevelopment.    

Learn about how two completely different development projects benefitted from this funding—one that experienced reinvigorated commercial activity along Stamford's waterfront, and another that supported a grassroots  effort to kickstart the initial step in transforming a former manufacturing complex into a vibrant venue for the creative arts in centrally located Cheshire.  

*In the case of a snow cancellation, the event will be held the following day, Wednesday, March  11, 2015. same time and location.
