NORWICH — Last year the Friends of the Museum District began beautification efforts on the museum district, and Co-Chair Pegi LoPresti announced at the March 1 joint committee meeting that Phase 1A of the work has been completed.

"We have made it through Phase 1A of construction in the museum district. It basically started at the Rexford Street-Mitchell Street intersection, up to the railroad tracks," said LoPresti. "We’re now looking to continue the phase right from the railroad tracks up to North Broad Street."

Phase 1A projects included new sidewalks, landscaping, signage, lighting, and more. Phase 1B will include similar projects, and the Friends of the Museum District have requested city support in the form of in-kind labor from the Department of Public Works (DPW), which was provided during Phase 1A. The Friends of the Museum District would cover the cost of materials.
