A design workshop for the Freight Street Redevelopment Strategy will be held on Tuesday, February 6th at 6:00 p.m. at Waterbury City Hall Veterans’ Memorial Hall. Workshop attendees will be asked to review two Draft Master Plans and provide the project team with input and feedback on the overall “look and feel” of the Freight Street District. The design workshop builds off of the December visioning session which was attended by over 80 members of the public. At the visioning session, the public expressed support for a mix of residential, commercial, and recreational land uses in the Freight Street District. Input from the visioning session has been incorporated into the Draft Master Plans.
Thank you to all who participated in the Freight Street District Visioning Session on December 5th at City Hall. For those who were unable to attend, you can review workshop materials on the “Documents” page, or by clicking here. The next public workshop will be held in January or early February. Details for that workshop will be announced in the upcoming weeks. We hope to see you there!
The City of Waterbury and the Waterbury Development Corporation have partnered to create a Redevelopment Strategy and Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Plan for the Freight Street District. The purpose of the project is to create a redevelopment “road map” for the Freight Street District that outlines the steps that the City needs to take to spur development
- Prioritization of environmental cleanup funds
- Set cleanup standards for properties based on future uses
- Identification and prioritization of infrastructure improvements
- Mechanisms to facilitate land acquisition and property assembly
- Regulatory changes (zoning, permitting, etc.)
- Market feasibility of different uses
- Funding sources and funding strategy
This project builds off of the $19.5 million in infrastructure improvements being made in the Freight Street District through the Waterbury Active Transportation and Economic Resurgence (W.A.T.E.R.) Project
