||Town Center Improvements
The purpose of this project is to enhance the aesthetic and economic character of Ledyard Town Center. Along with the new Police Station, the project could have a dramatic impact on Ledyard Center. The funds sought for this project will be used for the construction of streetscape amenities & improvements throughout the center of Ledyard Center. The project area will consist of Zones 4, 5 & 6 of the attached Vision Plan for Ledyard Center (Ledyard Center Conceptual Plan Cost Areas).
Zone 4 Town Green Phase 2 will consists of completion of the Town Green including: a new stage/ community theater, new parking paving and curbing, lighting, upgraded power services to facilitate large events, new soil, lawn & irrigation, trees & plantings, reconfigured walking track and a new expanded crosswalk to facilitate safe access to the Green.
Zone 5 School Improvements will expand/continue the streetscape initiated at the Town Green, and consists of: street trees and stone walls along the frontage of the school.
Zone 6 Town Hall Improvements will consist of: a new street-side plaza with stone walls, lights, benches, and plantings & trees. Additionally, the streetscape will be continued along the western edge of Rte 117 by reducing excess pavement, defining/narrowing driveway entrances and adding new sidewalks and street trees.
When complete, this project will connect all municipally owned properties within the center of Town with a continuous improved streetscape including stone walls, street trees and sidewalks.
