Mayor Pavia Touts Washington Efforts to Bring Funds to Stamford

The mayor took a two day trip to Washington in an effort to find support for a variety of upcoming projects in the city, according to his office.

Stamford Mayor Michael Pavia announced Wednesday night his efforts in Washington that day alongside Connecticut congressional delegates and federal agencies to seek funding for improvements and upgrades to the city.

His two day trip is scheduled to close with a meeting at the White House with the Director of Intergovernmental Affairs David Agnew.

Pavia was also scheduled to meet with Congressman Jim Himes, Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Sen. Chris Murphy, and officials from the Federal Transit Administration and Housing and Urban Development. Pavia's office said these meetings would seek to cultivate state and federal support for transit-oriented development, urban revitalization, health care access, and Hurricane Sandy Resiliency Improvements.

Resources would be used to complete key transportation infrastructure projects including the Rail Bridge Upgrade, improvements to road corridors necessary for urban revitalization and for emergency egress from the Long Island Sound coastal area, said Pavia's office. The 100-year old rail underpass and street upgrade project is also critical to emergency preparedness for hurricane and storm events that impact the south waterfront area of Stamford.
