From Waste Site to Walkable Village
Lisa Prevost of The New York Times writes:
"The development will mark the renewal of a 653-acre site that has undergone an intensive cleanup over the past decade for radiological and chemical contamination."
This $1 billion "Great Pond Village," project will attempt to attract employees closer to Windsor's office corridor, as to avoid the current average 35 minute commute.
The project will also attempt to "create the old New England village where we have a walkable, mixed-use village center," reports David Winstanley, a principal with the developer, Winstanley Enterprises of Concord, Mass.
