Municipality where project is proposed: Southington

Address of Possible Project Location: see map below

Project Description:

An Environmental Impact Evaluation (EIE) has been prepared by Fuss & O’Neill, Inc. for the Southington Industrial Park Project in Southington, Connecticut.  The proposed project involves the development of a new industrial park on existing undeveloped land in the Town.  Three potential industrial park sites were evaluated in the EIE.  All three sites consist of primarily undeveloped, industrially zoned land located in the northern portion of Southington.  Based on the alternative analysis, a preferred site has been identified which is located east of West Street and north of West Queen Street.  The proposed industrial park is capable of supporting approximately 500,000 square feet of building space on approximately 60 acres.
