Silver Lane Committee

The East Hartford Silver Lane Advisory Committee was formed to guide a grant-funded study of how to best redevelop the commercial areas of Silver Lane, running from Main Street to Forbes Street.  The Committee was created as a result of the Town’s $200,000 Brownfields Area-Wide Redevelopment (BAR) grant, awarded in January, 2016 by the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD).  The purpose of the project is to create a comprehensive plan of the Silver Lane Corridor while identifying and studying the redevelopment potential of targeted brownfield sites.  This plan will be based upon market, environmental, and engineering analyses over a 16-month period.  Milone and MacBroom, Inc. of Cheshire, CT is assisting the Town in the development of the plan. 

The Committee is also tasked with ensuring that the BAR Project is coordinated with a multitude of studies and projects in the Silver Lane area, including the completion of the flood control study of Willow Brook and a transportation study conducted by the Capitol Region Council of Governments.
