Protecting historic buildings and town identity from flood vulnerabilities.
Meriden, Connecticut: $303,188
This is a Justice40 project.
Meriden is a town between the Connecticut hubs of New Haven and Hartford. It sits on the Quinnipiac River in the inland part of the state.
The project will demolish and remove an 8,400-square-foot structure and substructures at 100 Hanover Street. It will also perform abatement associated with building demolition, and deconstruction of paving and parking areas. Following demolition, the city will implement nature-based solutions by constructing the Harbor Brook Linear greenway trail at the site and will maintain the property as open space and as a public greenway. The project will be overseen by the city of Meriden and licensed Professional Engineers (PE). Other partners include construction contractors, Meriden residents, engineering professionals, the State of Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
