Sen. Lesser Welcomes $554k for Pistol Creek Trail

This week, State Senator Matt Lesser welcomed $554,130 for improvements to Middletown’s Pistol Creek Trail.

“Access to open space and community recreation are two things that measurably improve the lives of all residents and I am grateful for Connecticut’s commitment to investing in these local assets,” said State Sen. Matt Lesser. “I continue to support hiking trails, bike and multipurpose trails and active and passive recreational opportunities, to fully connect our urban centers and suburban communities.”

Gov. Ned Lamont and Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) Commissioner Katie Dykes Monday announced $10 million in grants to support the planning, building, expansion, and improvement of 45 multi-use trails located across Connecticut.

The grants are awarded through Connecticut Recreational Trails Grant Program, which is administered by DEEP. Funds to support the grants were approved by the State Bond Commission at its October 2023 meeting.
