Despite bumps in the road, town officials have been dedicated to revamping Mechanic Street and all of Windsor Center along with it. That effort continues Monday night as town council members will take an important step on the road to transforming Windsor Center.
When it meets Monday, the Windsor town council will set a public hearing for the sale of 55-69 Mechanic Street.
A special town meeting (an informal vote held at town hall) will also be necessary, as the land is valued at over $10,000, requiring public approval of the sale.
The town has decided to go with Lexington Partners, LLC — a Hartford-based commercial real estate firm — to build what officials hope will bring added foot traffic and commerce to the center of town.
Lexington Partners, owned by Martin Kenney, has proposed a housing development of 130 apartment units.
On Mon., Dec. 3, council members are scheduled to set a public hearing and a date for a special meeting.
According to town documents, the town planning and zoning commission unanimously approved the sale of the property during a July meeting.
The town council will meet at 7:30 p.m. in town hall council chambers.
