Veteran housing project in Meriden clears funding hurdle, construction to begin

Construction of a new veterans housing project on Hanover Street is expected to begin next month. Work on the nine-unit development, named Hanover Place, is expected to last nine months, Robert Cappelletti, executive director of the Meriden Housing Authority, told the authority’s board of directors this week. The $3.3 million project stalled for more than two years due to a delay in the release of state funding. The state Department of Housing announced funding for the project in 2016, but the housing authority only recently received the funds after Cappelletti lobbied local lawmakers for assistance.
