Special Town Meeting in Brookfield about 4 Corners funding

There is a special town meeting in Brookfield tonight.  Residents are being called on to attend and vote on appropriating $1 million to fund the streetscape improvements in the Four Corners area.  First Selectman Steve Dunn says the town wants to apply for a $500,000 grant, but matching municipal funds are needed, bringing the request to $1 million.

 

The project includes building sidewalks, installing streetlights, and creating turn lanes at the intersection of Federal and Station roads.  Town officials are looking into the cost of burying utility lines.  Eversource Energy has not yet provided an estimate to Brookfield on what the cost would be to not have above-ground wires.

 

The Small Town Economic Assistance Program grant requires $250,000 in local dollars.  A second STEAP grant of $500,000 was also awarded to Brookfield.  Nearly $800,000 from the Local Transportation Capital Improvement Program could be bolstered by $95,000 in additional LOCIP funding.

 

Residents can also discuss a $2.8 million dollar bond request for town and school improvements detailed in the town's Capital Improvement Program.  Dunn says they are looking to send that resolution to a referendum vote on July 19th. 

 

Tonight's special town meeting is at 5pm at Brookfield Town Hall.
