12/20/2022 - DECD Grant Award for Infrastructure Upgrade
The Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development awarded the Town of Fairfield a grant in the amount of $3,000,000 under the Connecticut Communities Challenge Grant to upgrade sewer Infrastructure in and around the Fairfield Metro Center train station.
First Selectwoman Brenda Kupchick remarked, "I want to thank our Grant Coordinator Teri Brown for her hard work on submitting this grant in conjunction with Economic and Community Development Director Mark Barnhart, CFO Jared
Schmitt and Engineering Manager Bill Hurley. This grant will support replacement of a 2,800-foot section of sewer line, which serves 60% of the town, enabling further development of the Fairfield Metro transit-oriented community. This project is long over due and has been pushed to the back burner for many years. I am grateful to see it finally coming to fruition."
