City receives $2 million grant to restore vacant hospital

Meriden Economic Development Director Juliet Burdelski says the commitment by the state will allow them to get the project started. The Record-Journal reports the hospital has been vacant since the 1990s and has continued to degrade since then, despite efforts at remediation. Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy’s office said Monday a total of $13.6 million in state funds would go to 14 municipalities in order to revitalize blighted properties.
