Stamford will receive $2.5 million for the Scrap Works initiative, which aims to transform Pacific Street by creating a main street with small businesses housed in renovated existing buildings that reflect community culture.
The award was given to this project because of its goal to create a bustling commercial area that increases foot traffic, prioritizes streetscape improvements while preserving and reinvesting the historic buildings of Pacific Street. The Scrap Works initiative will invest in affordable retail opportunities for residents and revitalize underutilized properties to create a variety of mixed-use spaces for work and play.
I want to thank Governor Ned Lamont and DECD Commissioner Lehman and his team for their focus on investing in projects that improve the vibrancy and quality of life for Connecticut residents. The City of Stamford looks forward to working with Scrap Works on this exciting endeavour.
