Transit Oriented Development

The Economic Development Commission (EDC) is excited the Enfield train platform design phase has been funded through federal, state and local monies. The hard work and perseverance of  the past and current administration, state and local officials is greatly appreciated. We look forward to seeing the presentation by the State DOT  for the final design in March 2021. The EDC fully supports this project and the tremendous economic redevelopment potential it will bring to Enfield.
