Storrs Center will be a mixed-use town center and main street corridor at the crossroads of the Town of Mansfield and the University of Connecticut and will feature retail, restaurant, and office uses with a variety of residence types all within walking distance of existing civic spaces, including E.O. Smith High School, the Mansfield Community Center, and Town Hall. The Post Office parcel is located on Post Office Road in Mansfield. The proposed work entails modifications to the site surrounding the Post Office facility, including parking, grading, and drainage improvements to that portion of Post Office Road fronting the Post Office facility.
