With the $28 million bond for Killingly’s recreation center project approved, what’s next?

Though voters last month approved a nearly $28 million bond to allow the shifting of recreational programming to a former Killingly school, residents are slated to keep using the old community center for at least the next couple of years. Voters on Nov. 28 approved a $27.8 million bond to cover repairs and refurbishments to the 79 Westfield Ave. building which currently houses school district administrative staff and EASTCONN students. Calorio said the project is now in the hands of the Permanent Building Commission which will be tasked with approving request for proposals needed to hire a drafting architect before the project goes out to bid. The town is in line to receive just less than $4 million in the COVID-19 relief money, with $2.6 million of that available for the community center project. Calorio said the council will discuss the possible use of that money in January.
