Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Stratford (CT) Army Engine Plant "needs new plan"
Harkins says new plan needed to develop engine plant

STRATFORD -- 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 setback marks the GSA's second failed attempt to purge the contaminated 78-acre property, largely vacant for more than a decade, from its national real estate inventory.


Mayor John A. Harkins proposes this: the feds should disassemble the buildings, pen a remediation plan, subdivide the site and transfer those portions with little or no contamination to the Town of Stratford. The town would tout the parcels to developers while the Army cleans up the rest of the property.
