On Wednesday night selectmen authorized the town to apply for funding that would provide economic, aesthetic and safety improvements in Collinsville.
The town will now apply for the The Main Street Investment Fund Program, a state initiative that awards towns up to $500,000 to improve commercial centers. There is no local "match" but if awarded, the town would incur some design costs, officials said.
The Collinsville plan was developed free of charge by Milone & MacBroom, and incorporates the suggestions from the 2012 Collinsville Upper Mill Pond Master Plan, the 2008 Pedestrian and Vehicular Safety Committee report and a 1997 Collinsville Scenic Corridor study.
See the attached documents for the concept plans, to which the town could make some further refinements if the funds are granted.
