The Bethel Board of Finance has approved an allocation of General Fund money for the expansion of Clarke Business Park. The state Bond Commission approved a $635,000 grant-in-aid for Bethel last year. The overall project is estimated at $1.5 million. The expansion is now possible with the 2016 completion of the Eureka Lake water storage tank, which brought needed fire suppression and supply to the area. Plans call for adding four commercial lots, totaling 13.2 acres, to Trowbridge Drive and the cul-de-sac on the southern edge of the park.
