Residents at Stern Village will find their accomodations a little more snug soon, and save a little money too.
Stern Village was recently awarded an $800,000 Community Development Block Grant through the Small Cities Grant program. The state Department of Housing and Gov. Dannel Malloy approved the grant last week. The funds will be used primarily to upgrade the windows in the 222-unit senior rental community to be more energy efficient. The grant will allow Stern Village to replace 186 single-pane windows with newer, more energy efficient models. The current windows are 20 years old, wood framed, and drafty.
