Governor Rell: Previously Approved Pine Lake Dredging Grant
to be Reallocated to Improve Area Parking
Governor M. Jodi Rell today announced that a language change to a prior grant to Bristol for the dredging of Pine Lake is expected to gain approval when the state Bond Commission meets March 16.
The change will allow for parking improvements to be made at Pine Lake.
“I know Pine Lake advocates have been very patiently waiting for word from the state on these parking lot improvements,” Governor Rell said. “We want to do all we can to improve the quality of life for Bristol residents who live and travel around the lake.
“This is also an important environmental project that will make the lake a regional asset. By allowing some flexibility in the original designation of this funding, we are maximizing the state’s investment. We want to make certain that as many area residents can visit the lake as possible to enjoy the local scenery.”
