Senator Anwar, Representative Foster Announce Bond Funding Supporting East Windsor Facility

Today, State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) and State Representative Jaime Foster (D-East Windsor) announced the State Bond Commission voted at its December 8 meeting to release $131,000 in bond funding to support East Windsor’s Solnit North facility.

In 2015, the Commission approved funding for renovations at the facility, which serves as a psychiatric residential treatment facility for adolescent teenage boys. Those renovations came in under budget, and the $131,000 will be combined with $180,000 of remaining funds to support repairs to the facility’s pool, basketball court and other needed emergency and capital repairs.

“I’m grateful to the State Bond Commission and Governor Lamont for their support of East Windsor, and I’m grateful that these projects will support valuable resources for young men in need,” said Sen. Anwar. “This work is necessary and important and I am encouraged that it is being made a priority.”

“Through my conversations with East Windsor Police Department, town stakeholders, and residents, I’ve received consistent feedback that we can do more to support the Solnit North facility as a neighbor in our community,” said Rep. Foster. “I’m hopeful that with the funding approved today by the Bond Commission we can provide Solnit with the resources necessary to do just that, while ensuring the boys at the facility have access to quality treatment. Thank you to the Governor and the State Bond Commission for prioritizing this funding.”

“Solnit North provides an invaluable service to our state, and this funding will enable upgrades to be made at the facility to enable it to continue its mission for many years to come,” said Governor Ned Lamont.
