Lieutenant Governor Timothy P. Murray today joined state and local officials to participate in the groundbreaking ceremony for the One Webster Avenue mixed-use development in Chelsea, and announce a $500,000 MassWorks Infrastructure Program grant for public infrastructure improvements that will support the project's development.
The MassWorks Infrastructure Program grant announced today, along with funding from the City of Chelsea, will be used to make roadway and sidewalk improvements to enhance the public spaces and the commercial component of the project along Eastern Avenue. The project is expected to create more than 100 construction jobs and is slated for completion in fall 2011. These public infrastructure upgrades will help support the development of One Webster Avenue, a mixed-use development that will create 120-units of market rate rental housing and commercial space.
The Patrick-Murray Administration this year launched the MassWorks Infrastructure Program as a one-stop shop for municipalities seeking public infrastructure funding. The program consolidates six existing infrastructure programs, each aimed at supporting job creation and economic development, to provide increased efficiency, service, and communication when cities and towns apply for infrastructure grants and resources. This approach has reduced duplication, improved accountability, and provided for the most effective management of state resources.
