Sen. Cabrera Applauds $1 Million in Bond Funding for Crucial Hamden Projects


HARTFORD, CT – Today, state Senator Jorge Cabrera (D-Hamden) applauded the state Bond Commission for approving $1 million in funding for several important projects across Hamden in their most recent bond agenda.

Included in the agenda is $750,000 to go to the town to further the development of repairing and upgrading the existing stormwater infrastructure to alleviate chronic flooding in Newhall neighborhood. Additionally, $291,855 is slated to go to Hamden Middle School for various improvements and upgrades.

“This is important funding for some crucial projects and I’m grateful to the Bond Commission for approving them,” said Sen. Cabrera. “Preventing flooding in the Newhall neighborhood and modernizing the drainage infrastructure will provide people with peace of mind and safety for years to come. Additionally, funding for Hamden Middle School furthers the investments we continue to make in our young people’s education.”

Governor Ned Lamont shared the senator’s sentiments that this funding is imperative to modernizing the draining systems in the Newhall neighborhood.

“The Newhall area of Hamden has had years of flooding issues due to outdated drainage systems, and this state funding will help repair that infrastructure and strengthen it to withstand future severe weather,” Gov. Lamont said.
