Officials Seek To Ease Sale Of Stratford Site

STRATFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Federal officials have agreed to a new process to sell a 78-acre waterfront property once used for making Army vehicle engines.

Hearst Connecticut Newspapers report that a group representing the U.S. General Services Administration, Stratford’s mayor and members of Connecticut’s congressional delegation met recently to establish a quicker, more transparent selling process.

The new plan calls for a 30-day period for developers to submit development proposals and a 30- to 60-day period for the Army and GSA to determine whether the plans are feasible.

The new proposal eliminates a bidding process that Marc Dillon, chief of staff for Stratford Mayor John Harkins, says did not work.

The government failed to sell the site using a bidding process three times last year. A sale negotiated in 2008 later collapsed.
