State Invests in Howland Hughes

February 16, 2018

The State Bond Commission today approved $500,000 to help redevelop the downtown Howland Hughes building.

The money, and a previous $5 million state grant, are part of a package to help spur redevelopment of the landmark building. My colleagues and I in the Waterbury delegation support projects that invest in our community. Waterbury NEXT seeks to transform the city. Waterbury NEXT envisions a $20 Million public-private investment in revitalizing our community. Investing in housing, jobs and economic development is what Waterbury NEXT is all about.

The grand department store closed in the late 90’s.
