Bethel Gets $430K Grant for Sidewalk Repairs

State grant will fund repairs to eight sidewalks around town.

The governor’s office announced a series of grants Monday under the state’s Small Town Economic Assistance Program (STEAP), including $430,000 for Bethel's sidewalks.

Grants were awarded to 28 towns throughout Connecticut for the purpose of funding a variety of economic development, community conservation and quality-of-life projects.
“These small town grants allow the state to partner with municipalities on projects that will help improve our communities, rebuild our infrastructure, and create jobs,” Gov. Dannel Malloy said. “These are investments that will make our towns a better place to live and work, will increase the quality of life, and help attract economic development and growth.”
Bethel will receive a grant for $430,000 for the installation and repair of sidewalks for eight streets around town. These upgrades will provide pedestrian and handicapped pathways to the Downtown Business District as we as the Bethel Metro-North train station.
