CT Housing Commissioner Visits Site

On Tuesday, April 30, CT Housing Commissioner Seila Mosquera-Bruno and her team visited the future site of Church Street Commons, a mixed income housing development to be built on land owned by St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Hebron. She announced $300,000 in predevelopment funding for the project.

That was excellent news of course but what made the day extra special was how clear the community support for the project is! Town leaders, including Peter Kasper, chairman of the Board of Selectmen, Dan Larson, vice chairman, and selectpeople Tiffany Thiele and Claudia Riley; Florence O’Sullivan, chairman of the Hebron Housing Authority; Mary Ann Foote, chair of the Historic Properties Commission; town planner Matt Bordeaux and numerous other town leaders; Hebron Schools superintendent Dr. Tom Baird; St. Peter’s vestry leaders; nonprofit leaders; and members of CoDE (Coalition on Diversity and Equity) were on hand to celebrate progress made on this housing development.

Other funders were represented as well: Matt Pugliese, Deputy Commissioner of the CT Department of Economic and Community Development, Jim Horan of LISC-CT, and Nicholas Jones of Eversource. Leaders from the CT Housing Finance Authority, Capitol Region Council of Governments and Center for Housing and Economic Opportunity were there to show their support and excitement for the project.

Commons CDC Board members thank everyone who attended – we are grateful to see our community leaders come together in support of this much needed housing.
