Message from Mayor Florsheim.
As some people know, we have a public information meeting scheduled tonight with DOT to talk about the upcoming Arrigoni Bridge and St. John's Square project. We have been carefully considering the best course of action for this event in the wake of COVID-19 preparations.
After consulting with state and local officials, we have decided to proceed with this meeting, but with some restrictions.
The meeting will be live streamed via Facebook Live on this page starting at 6:30.
If you are able to participate via live stream, you are encouraged to do that instead of attending in person. The feed will be monitored during the live stream and questions asked in the comments will be answered.
If you have advance questions or comments, you can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be asked at the meeting even if you do not attend.
In-person attendance will be limited to 50 people, with preference given to North End residents and business owners. Attendees are asked to please take precautions including washing their hands before arriving and avoiding unnecessary contact.
The presentation from DOT will be shared-- and I will of course continue to use this page to provide updates about the project's progress.
I want to thank the CT DOT team for really stepping up their community outreach about this project after hearing our concerns, and to everyone in Middletown for your cooperation in helping keep our community healthy!
