From State Rep. Chris Rosario:
Deputy Speaker Chris Rosario (D-Bridgeport) is pleased to announce the expected approval of funding for Remediation of former Remington Arms by the State Bond Commission.
“Addressing blight in the city has been one of my top priorities and this $10 million in funding for remediation of the Remington Arms parcel will be a transformative project for Bridgeport’s East Side,” Rep. Rosario said. “I thank Governor Ned Lamont, Speaker Matt Ritter, Majority Leader Jason Rojas and Representative Dorinda Borer for their support of this funding and look forward to the remediation improvements.”
Governor Ned Lamont said, “I am glad that the state can partner with Bridgeport on this project so that we can clean up this eyesore and put it back into productive use in a way that will ultimately generate back many more times the amount of this investment through new jobs and private investments.”
The State Bond Commission will meet on Tuesday December 21, 2021 to vote the latest agenda and this project is contained in item 53(F).
