Senator Maroney Welcomes Remediation Grant For Former Country Club of Woodbridge

Today, State Senator James Maroney (D-Milford) welcomed the Department of Economic and Community Development’s announcement that Woodbridge will receive a significant grant to aid the assessment of a key property through the Brownfield Remediation and Development Program.

“It’s encouraging to know our local resources like this important property are receiving support from the state to support future uses,” said Sen. Maroney. “I’m looking forward to the findings of these planning efforts to support future housing or development.”

Woodbridge will receive $132,000 for a planning grant that will assess a 155-acre property, which formerly served as the Country Club of Woodbridge. The funds will help advance a comprehensive redevelopment vision for housing or mixed-use development in town.

Woodbridge leaders purchased the property in 2009 to prevent development there after previous owners went bankrupt. Last year, the town issued a Request for Proposal for a comprehensive plan regarding recommendations for the site’s use, with a master plan hoped to balance potential environmental protection, housing types, or passive recreational infrastructure based on residents’ wishes.
