6 development projects to watch in East Haven in 2022

The town has been working on multiple projects over the past few years with the goal of bringing more people into the area, improving the local economy and quality of life. Efforts range from improving the Shoreline Greenway Trail, which saw a 400-foot expansion in 2021, to working out how to create more open space in town. Issues with the Pasquale G. “Patsy” DiLungo Veterans Memorial Ice Rink have been ongoing since April 2019 due to a leak in the ice floor and leaking in the cold header of the rink. An expansion of the Shoreline Greenway Trail to connect the trail to Cosey Beach Avenue using sidewalks and shared bike lanes is set to begin construction this spring. Plans to expand the runway and add a new terminal at Tweed New Haven Regional Airport on the East Haven side were announced in spring 2021. In 2020, The Bluffs LLC appealed the decision previously made by the commission to deny an application to create a new affordable housing district that would permit the developer to place 504 units that fall under state statute 8-30g on a property located at 31 and 100 Sperry Lane and 161 Foxon Road. The signed stipulation allows the developer to construct four multi-unit buildings for a total of 380 units. Three of the buildings will be age-restricted for a total of 260 units and the other building will have 120 assisted living units.
