and Bailey Road Athletic Complex


State Sen. Paul Cicarella and State Rep. Dave Yaccarino celebrated the announcement of two state grants to benefit projects in North Haven. The North Haven Memorial Library will receive $249,999, and the Bailey Road Athletic Complex will receive $500,000, both for facility upgrades.


Sen. Cicarella said, “Thank you to the state’s bond commission and Governor Lamont for recognizing the importance of these North Haven projects.


“The North Haven Memorial Library is utilized by residents of all generations, and this funding will create a positive impact for each of the library’s diverse patrons. The town plans to match this funding to complete the project, which is a great example of using taxpayers’ money responsibly.


“Also, the state’s investment in the Bailey Road Athletic Complex will help to complete this ongoing project to enhance and beautify the Board of Education’s athletic fields. These improvements benefit our students and residents, providing them with space for recreation and competition. Both projects will ensure North Haven continues to be a great place to live, work, and raise a family.”


Rep. Yaccarino said, “I am so thrilled to announce these grants to North Haven which will support two pillars of our community and benefit families, residents, and guests to our town. Renovating the ball fields at Bailey Road will help expand on the beautiful improvements to the Middle School and High School athletic complexes and give players, coaches, and families something to be proud of. The improvements to the library will also bolster one of our town’s greatest resources, making the North Haven Memorial Library a destination for readers and learners of all ages, especially growing families.


“I want to thank Governor Lamont and his team for their recognition of these great projects and for their investment in North Haven.”


The state funding is part of a larger agenda which includes similar projects across Connecticut affecting economic development, public safety, transportation, and more.
