Courtney Statement On Preston Vote To Proceed With Norwich Hospital Site Redevelopment

WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — Congressman Joe Courtney (CT-02) made the following statement after the Town of Preston voted to proceed with redevelopment plans for the Norwich Hospital site:

“The vote to approve the final plan to redevelop the Norwich Hospital site is a strong affirmation of years of hard work by the Town of Preston,” said Courtney. “The collaboration to redevelop this site will provide an enormous boost not just for Preston but for the larger southeastern Connecticut region. First Selectman Bob Congdon deserves recognition for his steady leadership throughout this process and for getting the project to this point. The decision to collaborate with the Mohegan Tribe, whose roots in the area go back centuries, shows an enduring commitment to working with regional partners. I am also proud that my office was part of the team that obtained federal brownfields grant funding from the EPA in 2012 and 2014 to help pay for the environmental cleanup necessary to lay the groundwork for development at this site.”
