Kent unveils completed streetscape
KENT — On Wednesday, Nov. 8, Kent recognized the completion of phase one of its Streetscape Project.
At 2 p.m., First Selectman Jean Speck, state Rep. Maria Horn (D-64), state Sen. Stephen Harding (R-30), and newly elected selectmen in Kent gathered on Main Street to cut the ceremonial ribbon. Also present was Sheila Mosquera-Bruno, commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Housing and Garrett Eucalitto, Department of Transportation commissioner.
Eucalitto remarked, “We do large projects all around the state...major highways, major railroads...but these are the projects that have the greatest impact on our individual communities.”
Speck also recognized and thanked former First Selectman Bruce Adams, who was instrumental in the early days of Streetscape.
The completion of phase one has given Kent walkable and safe sidewalks along Main Street and Bridge Street.
With tearful sincerity, Speck said, “I’m thanking everybody that had a hand in the concrete and granite.”
