Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Rolfite site, Shelton, Connecticut

Shelton will receive a state brownfields grant of $79,000 to study the 1.7-acre Rolfite property on Canal Street for mixed-use redevelopment.

The city plans to transfer ownership of the Rolfite property — named for a previous industrial user of the land — to Primrose Companies Realty, controlled by developer John N. Guedes.

In return, Guedes is to pursue a private project to redevelop the combined Rolfite and Spongex properties and build a new public road to connect Canal Street with Bridge Street,

The Rolfite property abuts the Housatonic River slightly south of Bridge Street, or the Derby/Shelton Bridge. The property is vacant at this time.
