Connecticut’s Department of Economic and Community Development is awarding millions of dollars in funds to a number of brownfield remediation projects throughout the Constitution State, including two properties in Bridgeport and one property in Shelton, the Fairfield County Business Journal reported. Bridgeport will get $725,000 to remediate a “Civic Block” site slated to be redeveloped into 35,000 square feet of commercial space and $600,000 for remediation efforts for part of the former Marina Village public housing complex onIranistan Avenue (the latter takes its name from a long-gone mansion built by P.T. Barnum). Shelton, meanwhile, will get $750,000 for remediation at the site of the former Star Pin Company. “The redevelopment of brownfields presents a huge economic potential,” Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy said in a statement. [FBJ]
