Sprague officials welcomed news that one of two separate grant applications for brownfield remediation at Baltic Mill had been approved by the state.
Gov. Dannel Malloy announced Feb. 14 that Sprague would be receiving a $2 million grant to "abate, demolish, and remediate" the 16-acre site of a former textile mill.
"This property at the heart of our town has the potential to have an extremely positive impact on our community, and I am very pleased that the state continues to see the merit in helping towns revitalize former mill sites," said Sen. Cathy Osten, who is also the first selectman of Sprague. "This project will not only improve the aesthetics of our town for those who reside here, but will spur economic and social growth along our stretch of the Shetucket River."
