|Friends and Neighbors,
Recently I've received several inquiries about the SHW/Farrel Foundry site redevelopment on the corner of Main and North Main Street in Ansonia. I wanted to provide you with an update on this project, which has received significant state funding for environmental clean-up, demolition, and transit-oriented development.
The project is very active. Officials from the state Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) meet with the City of Ansonia on a monthly basis to receive an update on the site's progress and help identify the next steps. There are a lot of moving parts. Below is a brief summary provided to me by DECD, which I hope will provide an understanding of why it appears that not much is happening from outside the site (there is a great deal happening with the site and behind the scenes).
