STRATFORD, Conn. – State Sen. Kevin Kelly (R-Stratford) applauded the authorization and allocation of state bonds for local economic redevelopment projects in Shelton, Seymour and Stratford.
On Wednesday, the State Bond Commission authorized $112,500 for an energy compliance project at the Seymour Library, $2 million for the phase one of cleanup for the Raymark Superfund site in Stratford and $3,314,056 for the Shelton Housing Authority for 40 units of elderly housing.
“I am pleased to announce that the State Bond Commission has authorized funds for three different economic redevelopment projects within my district,” Sen. Kelly said. “As the Co-Chair of the Aging Committee, I have a unique perspective and understanding of the need for more housing for our elderly. I welcome the initiative to usher in 40 units, specifically for senior housing in Shelton.”
The funds authorized will provide grant-in-aid to the Shelton Housing Authority to assist with the rehabilitation of 40 Units within the Helen Devaux Apartments for elderly housing.
“Today funds were also authorized for the Seymour library and the cleanup of the Raymark Superfund site in Stratford,” said Sen.

The funds authorized will provide aide to the town of Stratford to address the first phase of the remedial action for groundwater and soil remediation at the Raymark Superfund site in Stratford.
The funds authorized for the Seymour Library will provide aide for an energy compliance project.
