Middletown to hire consultant to design public walkway

MIDDLETOWN – The City of Middletown will spend $25,000 for a consultant to design a public walkway between East Main Street and the rear of the former Woolworth building on North Street.

The project is part of the rebirth of the downtown business district with more walking and parking opportunities, said Mayor Joseph DeStefano.

“We are working with the Presbyterian Church, the new owner of Tomkins to get all the way out to Orchard Street for lighting and sidewalk,” the mayor said. “No one has agreed on anything. We have all agreed to move forward after design.”

The state-funded Downtown Revitalization Initiative grant is covering the cost of the study.
