Sen. Kissel Applauds Funding for North-Central CT Responsible Growth

September 15, 2015

Sen. John A. Kissel today said that new federal and state funding will help advance transit-oriented development (TOD) opportunities in north-central Connecticut.

The state will use the combined $900,000 in funding to move forward on several statewide TOD projects, including the Enfield Train Station and at the two stations that will be relocated in Windsor and Windsor Locks.

“From Windsor to Windsor Locks to Enfield, we want to grow this strategic corridor in a smart way,” Sen. Kissel said. “Growing responsibly requires proper planning, and these funds will help to ensure that we grow north-central Connecticut’s infrastructure in a coordinated way. There is tremendous potential here to boost job creation throughout our region, and I thank our entire Connecticut Congressional delegation and the governor for their continuing work on this issue.”
