Redevelopment:

Redevelopment is coming to Stratford. I am proud of the work that the two Redevelopment Committees have done and the results are evident. This has been a process that has unfolded over the past three years. This year with our professionals, and the new members of the JLUB, we are poised to usher in a new era for Stratford, the first major changes in town in over 40 years. I want to thank everyone who has stepped up to make this possible.
