On behalf of the Town of Thomaston, NVCOG was awarded a $60,000 Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development Brownfield Area-wide Revitalization Grant for three (3) parcels along East Main Street in Thomaston. The long underutilized former Plume and Atwood facility is the center of the project area, which additionally includes the Railroad Museum of New England and the former New England Oil Terminal. The Town and NVCOG will investigate the sites’ existing challenges. The Town will additionally identify low-cost, incremental projects that may improve existing conditions while additional funding is sought for remediation.
Project Status: Procurement and final project scoping in progress.
