Project Type: Assessment
Activities: Through NVCOG’s fiscal year 2016 and Connecticut Brownfield Land Bank’s fiscal year 2019 assessment grants, the City of Derby was awarded $293,000 for the remediation of a former, and currently vacant, autobody shop. The site is located along the Naugatuck River, within a Transportation Oriented Development area and in close proximity to other downtown redevelopment projects. These grants will leverage an approximately $12 million investment from the developer who will build a mixed-use space with 90 one and two bedroom apartments.
Project Status: Derby has signed an agreement with BL Companies to oversee remaining remedial activities. Construction is expected to begin by August, 2023.
Public Meeting: NVCOG held a public meeting to present key updates on upcoming work and answer public inquiries about the project. The presented documents are available below.
