Danbury school roof, classroom walls and more capital projects proposed in $10.17M construction bill

State lawmakers later this month will act on a request from the local legislative delegation to provide grant funds that would support a series of school infrastructure improvements, including new classroom walls at King Street Primary, air conditioning system upgrades at multiple schools and a partial roof replacement at one building. The funds, if approved, would support 20 proposed projects, which include a $3.5 million project to install walls at King Street Primary, $1.45 million to replace air conditioning systems at multiple schools, a roof section replacement at Ellsworth Avenue School, an elevator replacement at Rogers Park Middle School, among others, according to a list of school district capital project needs that Godfrey shared with Hearst Connecticut Media. Local leaders will not find out whether the funding will be approved until May 8, the last day of session, said Santos, who also serves as the city’s community relations and constituent services advisor.
