East Hartford’s mayor is looking for state grant funding to support a look at how the city can spur redevelopment in a third major part of town.

Redevelopment of the city’s Silver Lane commercial corridor is slowly starting to gain speed, while major warehouse developments just to the south are under construction.

And a coalition of developers have proposed to revamp decaying office properties just across the river from downtown Hartford into a major mixed-use center.

Now, according to a proposal the East Hartford City Council will take up Tuesday night, Mayor Connor Martin wants to examine redevelopment opportunities across Interstate 84 from the Silver Lane corridor, around the intersection of Burnside Avenue and Church Street.

The mayor is seeking permission to apply for a $200,000 allocation from the state Brownfields Area-Wide Revitalization Grant program. According to the proposal, the grant can be used for everything from brownfields mapping to market analyses and even conceptual plans.

The city used a similar grant to kick-start the city-led redevelopment of the SIlver Lane corridor.
