Stratford breathing easier on former Army plant site

STRATFORD  Town officials say they are relieved an emergency meeting in
Washington, D.C., with Army officials has quelled the militarys
unexpected decision to try and sell the 78-acre former Stratford Army
Engine Plant site to a developer instead of the town.
After learning that the Army had allegedly advertised the massive Main
Street property "for sale or lease," Town Manager Mike Feeney and U.S.
Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-3, met with Army officials to resolve the issue.

Ever since the former military engine plant closed in the mid-1990s,
local officials have anticipated taking over the complex for commercial
redevelopment once the Army completed removal of toxins on the site.

Both Feeney and DeLauro said they expressed their concerns during the
Washington meeting that the Army was now considering other options.
Feeney, however, said Army officials denied trying to sell the property
to a developer. Army officials could not be reached for comment.

Sources said the Army had been seeking offers from a buyer who would be
willing to take over the environmental cleanup, but could not find any
interested parties.
