Brookfield residents approve Greenway, capital items funding

Brookfield residents have passed two questions, one is the Still River Greenway Project, the other is various Capital Project items. 


$1,037,000 has been approved for six capital items.  The Greenway project allocation is about $2,407,000.  That would cover design and construction of the 8,500 foot multi-use trail in Brookfield.  $481,000 in bonds was authorized, with the balance of the project being paid for through state and federal grants. 


The town's capital project items includes $69,000 for heating, lighting and bathroom renovations at the Library; $250,000 for parking lot paving at the library, Town Hall and Public Works facility; $188,000 for windows, HVAC and carpet replacement at Town Hall, $120,000 for air conditioning replacement in the High School auditorium; $180,000 to replace a backhoe; and $230,000 for roof replacement and kitchen renovations at the Center Fire Company.  The paving allocation is Phase 1 of a two-year, $500,000 program.  The Town Hall infrastructure work is the final of three phases in the project.


Planning for the Greenway has been in progress for more than a decade.  The two mile multi-use train would run between Route 133  to Route 202 across rom Laurel Hill Road.  Phase 1 was completed in 2011, Phase 2 will start this year, though final Army Corp of Engineering approval is still pending.
