The facility currently houses 35 employees and has limited space available for restrooms, locker rooms and kitchen and office spaces, he said. The renovation involves the addition of an overnight sleeping facility and modifications including new flooring, a new ceiling and new staff lockers.
Malloy announced a series of grants under the state’s Small Town Economic Assistance Program (STEAP). The grants will be awarded to 28 towns throughout Connecticut for the purposes of funding a variety of economic development, community conservation and quality-of-life projects.
“These small town grants allow the state to partner with municipalities on projects that will help improve our communities, rebuild our infrastructure, and create jobs,” Malloy said. “These are investments that will make our towns a better place to live and work, will increase the quality of life, and help attract economic development and growth.”
