AVON

Grant for downtown planning

Continue reading below

The town will use a $1,000 grant from the state Department of Housing and Community Development to pay Mansfield’s town planner to develop a plan for downtown Avon. The “Peer-to-Peer’’ grant is intended to allow towns to “enlist the services of a staff member of another community to perform work for which Avon has no in-house expertise,” according to Frank Hegarty, chairman of the Avon Board of Selectmen. The Mansfield planner, Shaun Burke, will develop options for downtown Avon that spur economic development and community pride, Hegarty said. He said selectmen chose Burke because of his many years of experience with the redevelopment of Mansfield’s downtown. - Johanna Seltz
