William Warner, AICP, the former Middletown Director of Planning, Conservation, & Development, has been selected as the recipient the 2014 Connecticut Light and Power Award for Outstanding Contributions to Main Street Revitalization, CMSC announced today.
Mr. Warner has worked tirelessly over his twenty-five years with the City to champion Middletown’s many natural and historic assets. During his tenure the City’s downtown area underwent a remarkable revitalization. More than two million square feet of commercial and industrial space was developed, while more than 2,500 acres of open space in Middletown’s rural areas was preserved.
The CL&P Award was established by CMSC in 2001 to recognize individuals and organizations who dedicate themselves to promoting an awareness of the necessity of a comprehensive management approach to the revitalization of Connecticut’s historic downtowns and neighborhood commercial districts.
Mr. Warner will be presented with the CL&P Award at the Connecticut Main Street 2014 Awards Gala on June 9th at ROIA Restaurant in Downtown New Haven.
