Kuster Highlights Infrastructure Developments in Nashua

Nashua, N.H. – Yesterday, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) met with Nashua Mayor Jim Donchess at the Nashua Public Library Plaza to discuss the plaza’s redevelopment, which Kuster secured $3,000,000 for through Fiscal Year 2023 Community Project Funding. This project will make crucial public safety and accessibility improvements to the Nashua Public Library Plaza to ensure everyone in the community can enjoy it. Later, the group discussed ongoing infrastructure investments throughout Nashua.

“New Hampshire’s public libraries are essential community spaces – they create opportunities for neighbors to meet, gather, and learn together. We must invest in them to ensure they can fully serve our communities,” said Kuster. “It was wonderful to discuss the redevelopment of the Nashua Public Library Plaza with local leaders – from building ADA-compliant walkways to installing new lighting for safety and constructing an accessible playground, this project will be a game-changer. I was proud to help deliver the funding needed to get this effort underway and will continue fighting to strengthen the infrastructure across our state.”

"Federal funding for infrastructure projects has been key for revitalizing Nashua's historic downtown," said Nashua Mayor Jim Donchess. "We are very grateful for Rep. Kuster's support of the City of Nashua and much-needed public infrastructure funding."

Kuster is a fierce advocate for funding community projects across the Second District, including many in Nashua. During the Fiscal Year 2024 negotiations, which are still under consideration in Congress, she secured $500,000 to construct the Nashua Riverfront Pedestrian Bridge. During the Fiscal Year 2022 negotiations, Kuster delivered $300,000 to make the Cotton Mill Transfer Bridge ADA accessible.
