Town Profile

About Six million visitors pass through Windsor Locks
annually.  Windsor Locks is the home of the country's first
woman governor, Ella Grasso, or the home of Connecticut's oldest
weekly newspaper, the Windsor Locks Journal. Rather, they are passing
through because it is the home of  Bradley International Airport
one of three major airports in New England.

Windsor Locks offers Bradley and much more to business; an
ideal location, unrivaled transportation and freight 
capabilities, and an attractive tax structure.

Windsor Locks is located on the west bank of the Connecticut
River; only 12 miles north of Hartford and 13 miles south
of Springfield, MA.   Additionally, Boston and New York are 
within two and one-half hours rides, respectively.

Besides Bradley and the seven major carriers serving it,
Windsor Locks also offers AMTRAK  and CONRAIL service,
coverage by several major bus lines, and the convenience of
a location along the I-91 corridor which stretches from
Canada to the Long Island Sound.

The town tax structure is also quite attractive. Based on the low
21.21 Mill Rate, assessments are distributed relatively equally 
(Commercial-20%, Industrial-40%, residential-30%). For global
businesses, Windsor Locks offers the tax and duty advantages 
of its Foreign Trade Zone 71.

The Town of Windsor Locks recognizes the importance of a strong
environment and always looks forward to developing new
business opportunities.

Public Works


PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT Public Works Facility- Through a combined effort of Highway and Park personnel, the new 3200 square foot addition is now complete. The project started in November 2002 and was opened to the public on October 30, 2003. While a good part of this project was contracted out, the efforts of the Public Works Department yielded the Town of Windsor Locks an estimated savings of $100,000.00. Highway Division- Downtown reconstruction is underway. During this last construction season, updated drainage and sanitary sewers were completed on Grove Street, from Center Street to Chestnut Street. The final course of pavement was in place, as were the sidewalks and new curbing, in the fall of 2003. Work in the area designated as “downtown” will continue in the spring of 2004. Center Street, James Street and Oak Street are also slated for rejuvenation next year. Newly resurfaced roads for this year also include North Street, King Spring Road, Center Street, Graves Street, Hickory Street and Wedemeyer Street. Underground drainage systems were installed this past summer on Thomas Street, North Street and Center Street. These drains will keep the ground water from entering the roadways and freezing in the winter months and slowly deteriorating the road surface and base during the spring and summer months. Parks and Grounds- Pesci Park has undergone an enormous facelift during the 2003 season. New fencing, padded walls with a brick façade, a new dugout and electrical upgrades have all been completed this year. There is more scheduled work at Pesci Park for the upcoming season. A new addition was put on the east side of the pavilion at Pesci Park for more office/storage space. This will open up the area inside for more camp participants and storage of equipment. A new irrigation well is scheduled to be drilled at Denslow Park. During the spring of 2004 the system will be brought on line for watering the athletic fields. The well at Southwest Veteran’s Park had the pump and piping replaced this year. Upgrading of this irrigation equipment is necessary to continue keeping these fields in good playable condition.

WATER POLLUTION CONTROL AUTHORITY, WPCA Major construction is now 100% complete on the Nitrogen / Denitrification Upgrade Project at the Water Pollution Control Facility. The WPCF will meet the calendar year 2003 total nitrogen discharge limit of 122 lbs / day thus avoiding the need to purchase any nitrogen credits from the Connecticut DEP. Work still continues on the SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) computer system. To comply with the Connecticut DEP UST (Underground Storage Tank) regulations the WPCA replaced five ust’s. The reconstruction of Old County Road required construction of a new pump station to replace the existing station. This station was placed in service in May 2003 and should adequately service existing and anticipated flows from future developments in the area. The Sewer Commission allocated funding to replace all the roofs at the main, removal of the Lime Silo, and demolition of the Ozone Dome at the WPCF. This project is anticipated to be completed before July 2004. The Sewer Commission authorized Tighe & Bond Consulting Engineers to submit a proposed scope of work and level of effort associated with the facilities plan to the Connecticut DEP. The DEP will review the plan and authorize funding based on the following criteria; 100% grant money for anything inside the WPCF grounds and 55% for anything outside the fence. This funding is for planning only and does not include design and construction.

During the 1995-1996 fiscal year, 319 residents registered to vote, 355 voters were removed from the voter list because the registrars received information that the voter had registered to vote in another town, had moved out of Windsor Locks, had been convicted of a felony, or had passed away.

6,967 Voter Canvass cards were mailed in March of 1966 as required by law. Approximately 1500 voters did not return their card. Not returning a card may result in delays when attempting to vote in an election, primary or referendum.
