Special Town Meeting on streetscape in Brookfield postponed

A special town meeting in Brookfield about Streetscape Phase 4 was supposed to be held tonight, but has been postponed.  The $3.6 million project is the latest of the downtown revitalization project phases.  Brookfield will cover about 20 percent of the cost with the state issuing a grant covering 80-percent. 

The temporary new date is February 9th.  The meeting will be held in person.  First Selectman Steve Dunn says there are difficulties in verifying voter identities and residencies when it's a virtual format.  The meeting will be held at the high school auditorium and attendees must wear masks and social distance.

Construction will start on the 3rd phase this summer.  Community Development specialist Greg Dembowski says the phase being voted on is the largest.  Work includes new sidewalks, connecting the northern end of phase one to the Newbury Village condominiums on Federal Road. 

The overall plan also calls for housing, retail, new lampposts, greenery and a multi-use trail at the four-way intersection.
