Madison Awarded $401K STEAP Grant for the Town Campus Gym Floor
The Town of Madison is pleased to announce the recent award of a $401,600 from the 2023 Small Town Economic Recovery Assistance Program (STEAP) to assist the Town in making improvements to the Town Campus gym facility. The project will include hazardous material remediation, demolition, gym floor replacement and shower enhancements.
According to First Selectwoman Lyons, “The Town Campus Gym is an important facility that is used for a wide range of community activities, including acting as Madison’s current emergency storm shelter. Throughout the years, this gym has hosted a wide variety of youth, adult and senior recreational programming, summer camps, vaccines clinics, Town meetings, and Town employee events. This STEAP Grant award will allow us to move forward more quickly with repairs to the floor to return it to a consistent, usable condition.”
“This funding will help keep the Madison Town Campus gym safe, functional and a continued fantastic resource for residents,” said State Senator Christine Cohen. “Thank you to Governor Lamont for helping fund critical investments into our municipalities, and to First Selectwoman Peggy Lyons and her administration for their work on this project.”
"I'm thrilled to see over $400,000 coming to Madison for a much-needed replacement of our Town Campus gym floor," State Representative John-Michael Parker said, "which will positively impact recreational, communal, and even emergency operational activities in town. The STEAP grant is a great way for small towns like Madison to secure funding they otherwise would not have gotten. Thank you to Governor Lamont for approval of these funds and continued support of all towns in Connecticut, no matter the size."
Madison’s Director of Beach & Recreation Austin Hall echoed his thanks, “A new gym floor is important for so many members of our community. Our Town Campus Gym is used by every age group and for a large variety of athletic, social and civic events. I am very thankful to all of those involved in making this a reality."
First Selectwoman Lyons added, “I want to give a special thank you to Governor Lamont for his support of this important community project. And extend our thanks and appreciation to State Senator Christine Cohen and State Representative John-Michael Parker, who advocated for this project through the application process.”
