New Haven gets $390G for Union Station upgrade
(10/14/2011) New Haven Register - The city Thursday was awarded $390,000 of the $1 million it sought from the state to help with planning for a transit oriented development at Union Station.
The long-term project, which would not be completed until 2020, envisions additional garages, as well as housing and retail in the area of the train station, with the first 667-space garage completed by 2014.
The grant was one of 11 grants totalling $5 million that were awarded to 11 cities, towns and regional planning organizations aimed at better linking communities and transportation infrastructure, such as rail and bus stations.
“The projects that we’re supporting will help these towns and surrounding regions take tangible steps in making their communities more walkable, more accessible, and more attractive to residents and employers alike,” Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said in a statement.
