A long-vacant Main Street property in downtown Danielson could soon be owned by the town after officials and residents in Killingly approved $85,000 for the purchase and assessment of the building, reports The Norwich Bulletin.

The four-store front, two-story property has been mostly vacant for the last 20 years. Officials plan to secure the building, do a hazardous materials assessment and market it in the hopes of making it attractive to potential investors.

Elsie Bisset, the town’s economic development coordinator said the town is exploring joining the Connecticut Main Street Center, a nonprofit that works with towns to revitalize downtown areas in order to be eligible for grants they wouldn’t typically have access to.
