Survey results have been released by the town of Kent for what to do with a $500,000 grant awarded to the town last year. The Small Town Economic Assistance Program funding was originally designated to purchase a property on Main Street for a visitors center and restrooms, but the land was sold to an independent developer.
Kent First Selectman Bruce Adams sent out a survey with several alternate options. The Newstimes reports that about 340 Kent residents responded to the survey. A majority said the town should purchase a portion of the old railroad station on Main Street.
Adams will be make a presentation to the Board of Selectmen at their meeting next month about how to move forward.
