Annual Meeting: Wednesday, June 18

GNA’s 15th annual meeting will take place on Wednesday, June 18, at 7:30 pm, in the gym at Glenbrook Community Center, 35 Crescent Street. It is important to arrive early to check in as a voting member. After the business meeting, a program will be presented by Wesley Haynes, Executive Director of Historic Neighborhood Preservation. We will learn what is involved in the Historic Resources Survey, a State of Connecticut grant program that GNA is considering applying for.

Crescent Street Improvements are Underway

At the GNA meeting in March, the program was a presentation about Crescent Street by City Engineer Lou Casolo. Lou and Clerk of the Works, Anthony Carolluzzi reviewed the improvements to be made during the 3-month long project.

  • They are working with a $1,000,000 budget.
  • There will be a 4-foot sidewalk and a 3 1/2-foot brick amenity strip between the sidewalk and the street.
  • There will be trees in cast iron encasements and decorative illumination.
  • The street will have two 11-foot wide travel lanes.
  • Parking will be on the south side of the street only (2 of 17 on-street parking spots have been sacrificed.)
  • The project began in May and will take 3 months to complete.
  • New sidewalks will go the full length of Crescent from Taylor Reed to Glenbrook Road.

Quarterly GNA Meeting: March 19, 7:30-9:00

Our quarterly GNA meeting is tonight, Wednesday, March 19, 7:30 pm, in the gym at Glenbrook Community Center. The program will be presented by City Engineer Lou Casolo about Crescent Street improvements. Two years ago at the March 2012 meeting we told him our concerns about long-neglected Crescent Street. Now we are seeing results.

We will also be collecting gently used picture books for reading programs at Julia A. Stark Elementary School. Donations of one book or more will be appreciated.
