STAMFORD, Conn. — The Glenbrook Train Station may be getting a canopy soon when the state’s Bond Commission meets to decide on the $1.6 million needed for the project, a news release said.
If the funding is approved the money will be added to a previous allocation of $1.64 million to cover the total cost of construction, estimated at a little more than $3.2 million, according to the release.
“The funds will make a significant and positive impact on the daily lives of numerous members of our community who frequent the Glenbrook train station and the canopy will complement the hard work being done by the Glenbrook Neighborhood Association and numerous Glenbrook businesses and residents working to improve the quality of life for our neighbors,” State Rep. Dan Fox, D-148, said in the release.
“Glenbrook station is an important hub of our community that not only serves commuters but welcomes visitors and business people,” State Rep. Gerald Fox III, D-146, said in the release. ““This project will help provide a more safe and comfortable environment for riders, which translate into more people using the trains.”
The meeting will take place in the Legislative Office Building in Hartford on Oct. 3.
