A largely quiet City Council agenda, see here, for Monday night includes a communication from the Office of Planning and Economic Development for a professional services agreement with Freeman Companies covering design and engineering for the $500,000 state-funded Black Rock streetscape project to improve Fairfield Avenue. It will be referred to the Contracts Committee.
Mayor Joe Ganim has tapped Aaron Turner to serve on the Planning & Zoning Commission, referred to Miscellaneous Matters and James Morley to serve on the Fire Commission, referred to Public Safety and Transportation. Turner is a legislative and campaign organizer aligned closely with State Senators Ed Gomes and Marilyn Moore.
Mayoral and City Council citations will also honor the Firebird Society of Bridgeport and the coaches and student athletes of the Harding High School football team for organizing a beautification program in the East End that included the painting of 50 Fire Hydrants.
There is only one item for the full council to act on, everything else referred to committees:
Public Safety and Transportation Committee Report re: Petition by Attorney Linda Pesce Laske from Green & Gross P.C. on behalf of Andrzej Nasuto and AKN Home Improvements, LLC re: Discontinuance of a Portion of the Paper Street known as Summit Place.
Drum roll …
“Summit Place” abuts 245 Alba Avenue and 215 Alba Avenue in the Whiskey Hill area of the North End.
