Harkins says new plan needed to develop engine plant Brittany Lyte Connecticut Post February 22, 2011STRATFORD -- The federal government has failed a second time to move the Army Engine Plant off the auction block.
The General Services Administration received two bids for the Jan. 27 property auction, but both fell short of bidding requirements and were declined, according to GSA spokeswoman Paula Santangelo.

The town would tout the parcels to developers while the Army cleans up the rest of the property.
