New sidewalks for arts center project

New Sidewalks for Arts Center 017 (Small)

WEST HAVEN, Sept. 25, 2018 — Mayor Nancy R. Rossi, her executive assistant, Lou Esposito, and Public Works Commissioner Tom McCarthy look on as a concrete mixing truck prepares to pour concrete to lock in the newly installed precast concrete curbs for a sidewalk replacement in front of the long-planned arts center, the West Haven Center for the Arts, at 304 Center St. on Monday, Sept. 24.

The work, which will include a horizontal inset of stamped concrete that resembles red brick pavers, is being done by West Haven’s sidewalk contractor, Elm City Materials Inc. of Spring Street, and supervised by city sidewalk inspector Ernie Chiarelli.

The new sidewalks are being financed with unused state Local Capital Improvement Program funds from previous years, which were discovered by Rossi’s administration.

Rossi said she is committed to moving the arts center project forward, saying a first-class cultural arts center would complement West Haven’s 5-year-old Metro-North Railroad commuter station and The Haven, a $200 million, 261,182-square-foot luxury outlet center, as destinations that drive economic development for the downtown business district.
