The Town of Thomaston will conduct a Hybrid Public Information Meeting concerning the Elm Street Reconstruction Project. The meeting will be held on Monday, November 20, 2023, at 7:00 p.m. at the Lena Morton Gallery, Thomaston Town Hall, 158 Main Street, Thomaston, CT 06787. A Zoom option is available at https://bit.ly/46IQ1FH . The meeting will be live streamed via YouTube Live on the NVCOG YouTube channel at youtube.com/@nvcogct.
Formal Presentation will begin at 7:00 p.m. A Question and Answer (Q&A) session will immediately follow the presentation. Residents, commuters, business owners, and other interested individuals are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to learn about and discuss the proposed project.
The project’s scope will encompass a full-depth reconstruction of the road, upgrading the existing storm drainage system, installing pedestrian and cyclist facilities, which will include closing gaps in the existing sidewalk network. This project will revitalize Elm Street from Maple Street in the south to East Main Street in the north. Elm Street will connect to the Naugatuck River Greenway, a 44-mile multi-use trail that is being developed, which will attract tourism, economic development, and improve the quality of life for residents.
