The Middletown Patch is reporting that Middletown was one of the three communities chosen for CMSC’s Come Home to Downtown pilot project.  Torrington and Waterbury were also chosen for the program that will help attract developers and “mom-and-pop” building owners to redevelop underused buildings with a mix of uses and housing choices. It will also provide local public and private champions and partners with strategic tools to allow them to create or enhance a strong downtown management program.

“Our partners at CMSC realize our record of success already with having a dynamic and diverse and growing downtown and with the spirit of cooperation between our many partners — the city, the DBD, Chamber, developers,” said Quentin Phipps, Executive Director of the Downtown Business District (DBD).
