NORWICH – More than a year after receiving a $300,000 grant as part of the second round of the Restore New York Grant, the City of Norwich is going out to bid for the construction of three homes being built as part of the project.
In January of 2008, Norwich was notified that it would receive the $300,000 to demolish three condemned city homes and build new residences on those sites. Last summer, the houses located at 52 Fair St., 23 Grove Ave. and 7 Waite St. were demolished. Now the city is beginning the construction process by going out to bid.
“It’s finally coming together,” said Mayor Joseph Maiurano. The mayor explained that the city began the process three years ago when they applied for the first round of Restore New York funding. “We’ve been working on this for quite a while. We’re at an exciting point now.”
