Bethel residents approve funding to expand Clarke Business Park

Bethel residents have signed off on funding to expand Clarke Business Park.  During a special town meeting Tuesday, residents approved appropriating up to $872,633 from the General Fund for the balance of funding for the construction project.   This money would supplement a state Department of Economic and Community Development grant of $635,017.  Plans call for adding four commercial lots, totaling 13.2 acres, along with water and sewer.  The project is a long time coming.  Bethel has tried for decades to expand, but one big hurdle was a lack of water for business needs and fire suppression.  When the Eureka Lake water storage tank project was completed in 2016, Bethel sought state funding, which was approved last year.
