What you see in the above photo is an overgrown piece of property that is 909 Bank Street in Waterbury. The City of Waterbury wants to change this piece of land into a Park of some sort and Waterbury Mayor Neil O'Leary is seeking the public's input as to what they would like to see built in this proposed new park.

It's definitely an area that needs beautification, it's in the vicinity of Duggan School, a local V.F.W, a funeral home, and a couple of neighborhood bodegas. The park will sit in between a couple of multi-family homes on a small .04 acre lot, according to Mayor O'Leary.

The City of Waterbury will be hosting an online Public informational Meeting regarding the proposed Bank Street Park in the city's Brooklyn neighborhood this Thursday, January 21, 2021, at 6PM and the meeting will be held via Zoom. You can expect a summary of proposed design activities that have been thought of for the lot and the city will allot some time for your questions or comments during the course of the meeting.

Here's a photo from a different angle of the lot -


It's a decent parcel of land, I'm sure that it could be divided up into a half playground, half dog park design. Maybe they could install some raised beds in a sunny area of the park for the residents to grow flowers or a veggie garden? Give a Brooklyn artist a work area to paint their masterpiece?
