Sen. Cabrera Highlights $750,000 Awarded by the Community Investment Fund for Newhall Neighborhood Project in Hamden

Today, state Senator Jorge Cabrera (D-Hamden) highlighted $750,000 total awarded to Hamden for draining improvements in the city to alleviate chronic flooding in the Newhall neighborhood by the Community Investment Fund (CIF). The CIF board met today to approve the funding. Sen. Cabrera said he is elated these funding requests were approved.

“This funding is critically important to the people who have dealt with this flooding for far too long,” said Sen. Cabrera. “I am grateful to the CIF board for approving this project. Residents in the Newhall neighborhood will be provided with the peace of mind that their homes won’t be plagued by frequent flooding.”

The project consists of repairing and upgrading stormwater infrastructure through pipe, manhole and catch basin replacement. There will also be an addition of rain gardens and tree canopies.
