Hartley Announces State Investment in a Waterbury Transit-Oriented Development

City will develop plan to transform Waterbury’s Freight Street District

Senator Joan Hartley (D-Waterbury), today announced the approval of state funding to design a strategy for infrastructure improvements and future developments in Waterbury’s Freight Street District. The funding will allow Waterbury to pursue a transit-oriented development (TOD) in the area, developing commercial and residential space that is accessible to public transportation.

“The redevelopment of the Freight Street District is a transformative opportunity for the City of Waterbury,” said Senator Hartley. “By capitalizing on nearby transportation opportunities and existing infrastructure, we can provide a major boost to the local economy, attracting new businesses.”

Waterbury will receive $189,000 to develop and implement a TOD strategy for the Freight Street District, including a review of existing physical conditions, market analysis, public outreach, conceptual plans, and zoning assessment. The redevelopment strategy plans to attract, cultivate and retain talent that drives Waterbury’s future.

This funding is one of twenty projects around Connecticut that will be receiving state support.
