Urban Act Grant

April 5, 2017

I secured a $500,000 Urban Act grant to renovate Ansonia Armory, a mainstay on State Street for nearly 100 years and former home to the National Guard.

The project, which in part will involve repointing of bricks, repairs to the brick parapets and masonry work and new drains being installed, has gone out to bid, with bids slated to come back April 30. Once the bids are reviewed, a recommendation on which contractor to select for the job will be sent to the Board of Aldermen for approval.

Weather permitting, renovations can get underway in May, with a completion date set for October.
