BROOKFIELD, Conn. — It's a go for Brookfield's Four Corners streetscape project. Voters in Tuesday's referendum passed the measure with an unofficial tally of 929 "yes" votes versus 469 "no" votes.
The resolution will allow $1.7 million to top off funding for the first phase of the project, which is estimated to cost $3.5 million. The majority of the funding would be covered by grants.
Brookfield residents and officials have looked to address and improve the Four Corners area for decades. This project will include public sidewalks, lights, curbing, a bike path, parking, and planters throughout the area to make it more inviting and more pedestrian-friendly.
Four Corners is one of the retail hubs of Brookfield, with many restaurants, boutique shops and other assorted businesses within a short radius.
