Brookfield will apply for a state grant to pay for the next phase of the streetscape project.  During the Board of Selectmen meeting Monday, members agreed to sign a letter of support for a more than $3 million grant.  Brookfield would cover 6-percent, about $205,000.  The 6th phase would extend the Still River Greenway to the north.  Granite curbing would be installed Laurel Hill Road and Station Road, including around 4,000 feet of sidewalk and two retaining walls.  If Brookfield is approved for a state Local Transportation Capital Improvement Program grant, all phases of the project would total $14.7 million, with Brookfield only contributing about $3 million total.  Residents will have to sign off on the design plans if the grant is awarded and the proposal moves forward.  Brookfield must also have six abutting property owners approve the sidewalk installation
