Posted on May 6, 2015
Some new initiatives will create more Connecticut transportation jobs.
The city announced there will be projects in Old Saybrook to highlight transit-oriented development (TOD) initiatives in the surrounding area.
These improvements are complemented and supported by the private investment in a new residential development, to be known as Eastpointe at Saybrook Junction, made up of 186 one- and two- bedroom units. The development, by Eastpointe LLC of Greenwich, will have a dog park and have access to the Old Saybrook Junction Marketplace and the train station and bus stop.
The projects represent the state’s continued commitment to provide Connecticut and its local communities with a best-in-class transportation system, delivering economic development, job growth, and improved quality of life.
“The project in Old Saybrook is a perfect example of steps we can take to encourage public transit and sound land use policies in order to better meet the needs of our residents and enhance protection of natural resources, said Robert Klee, Commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. “With a focus on increasing access to the train station and providing housing nearby, we can reduce environmental impacts associated with transportation and improve the quality of life for people in the area.”
