Connecticut set to distribute $150 million in state aid to towns. Here’s a look at what projects are being funded

The state is poised to approve more than $150 million for dozens of Connecticut communities, helping Bloomfield to build a new library, Hartford to improve Pope Park and West Hartford to replace high school tennis courts. The Bond Commission on Thursday is expected to authorize grants that will aid Glastonbury, Rocky Hill, East Hartford, Vernon, New Britain, Manchester, Wethersfield, Middletown, Mansfield, East Windsor, Hebron, Portland, East Haddam, along with others. The state is also planning to put $1 million toward the cost of modernizing Bloomfield’s library system. By a 2,716 to 549 vote in November, Bloomfield residents approved spending up to $29.1 million to replace the Prosser Public Library in the town center and expand the McMahon Wintonbury Library near the Windsor line.
