Watertown Lawmakers Celebrate State Grant to Watertown for Steele Brook Greenway Improvements

June 7, 2024

Today, Chief Deputy Sen. Republican Leader Eric Berthel, ranking member of the legislature’s Appropriations Committee, and State Rep. Joe Polletta, celebrated the announcement of a state bonding grant, totaling $241,132, awarded to Watertown to benefit the Steele Brook Greenway.


“We are so thrilled to announce this funding injection which will support one of Watertown’s greatest assets for families and residents. The Steele Brook Greenway is essential for driving economic development in our town with its walkability and natural beauty. It offers a safe outdoor experience that families can enjoy and with these improvements, it will remain a staple in Watertown,” they said.


“We want to thank Governor Lamont and his team for their consideration of this project and for their continued support of our communities.”


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


Following the bond commission’s approval today, the funds can now be allocated.
