The Brookfield Board of Selectmen is asking the Planning Commission to weigh in on a plan to buy a parcel of land from the state to create a pocket park.  The town would have to pay a $500 application fee to the state for the land on the west side of Federal Road abutting Old Route 7.  This new proposed land purchase would increase the scope of the streetscape project to include landscaping and art sculpture for this park.  Officials expect the price from the state to be in the thousands of dollars range, not tens of thousands as Connecticut has no use for the property.  Even if Planning signs off, the town doesn't have to move forward with the project and will have the right of first refusal of the state offer.
