Senator John A. Kissel Applauds State Funding for Blighted Properties in Windsor

June 17, 2024

HARTFORD – Today, Governor Lamont announced a release of funding for 22 blighted properties across Connecticut. Released through the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, this funding can be used to redevelop these properties, get them back into working use, and provide a strong economic benefit to the surrounding community.

In Windsor, there are two projects being funded. $2,000,000 is being granted to remediate and abate the former Stanadyne manufacturing facility, located at 90 Deerfield Road. The intended purpose of this remediation on the 32.95 acre site is to reuse the property as a business park that will host new manufacturing, R&D, warehousing, and offices. Also, $200,000 will be granted to assess the former industrial site, also a Stanadyne property) located at 92 Deerfield road.

“Blighted properties can take years to remediate, and that process typically faces its strongest barriers in terms of funding. These grants from the State of Connecticut will bolster that process with the Stanadyne property, getting it back into good working order sooner, and allowing new businesses to come to Windsor. This will bring jobs and commerce to Windsor, benefitting the economy and providing greater revenue for the municipality. I thank the administration for identifying this project as a priority and look forward to seeing the fruits of this project.” Senator Kissel remarked.
