The Berlin Town Council voted to move forward with the $750,000 state grant, which was secured by Speaker of the House Joe Aresimowicz, for the planning and design of a new community and senior center in town at the Town Council meeting on Tuesday.
Speaker of the House Joe Aresimowicz said today that a state grant for Berlin for the planning and design of a new community and senior center in town has received final approval by the State Bond Commission.
Speaker of the House Joe Aresimowicz joined Governor Malloy, Mayor Erin Stewart, state and local officials and business leaders today to celebrate the $1 billion development project to transform portions of the Stanley Black & Decker manufacturing facility into a fuel cell-powered, high-speed data center complex called the Energy & Innovation Park.
“It was an honor to be able to pass this legislation as one way to remember the bravery and courage of these firefighters. Firefighters selflessly put their lives on the line every day to ensure that others are safe, and there is never enough gratitude we can give them. These five heroes paid the ultimate sacrifice to keep our community safe and this highway dedication will serve as a reminder to honor them and their families,” said Speaker of the House Joe Aresimowicz.
