An affordable housing complex for elderly and disabled individuals in Brookfield is getting new sidewalks soon.  Brooks Quarry, a 35-unit complex, is not in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.  Some residents spoke out about the issue at the Board of Selectmen meeting last week, asking when the building inspector would give the go ahead fo the $156,000 project.  The work is expected to start today.  There were delays because a contractor pulled out of the project.  They also found that underground wires weren't buried as deep as necessary.  Catch basin issues that led to flooding over the summer required new permits.  The delays then led to cost increases.  During the public speaking portion of last week's Sleectmen meeting, one resident said a flyer was put up alerting them that they'd have to use their back doors while the concrete slabs were redone, to stock up on food and medications and stay indoors while the work was completed.
