The City of Danbury would really appreciate your input right now concerning the future of it's downtown area. The year-long Downtown Danbury Zoning Study got underway in May 2023, with the goal of "Reshaping the regulatory environment within (Danbury) the downtown to recapture it as a vibrant center of the City".

Do you think that Danbury has too many smoke and vape shops along Main Street? Not enough parking, or public restrooms near the Patriot Garage? Do you think that the old buildings should be torn down to make way for a new rail line, or maybe a four-season sports complex? Do you think that the sewer system needs to be upgraded? Do you want to see a high-rise apartment building on West Street? Speak up and take part in the survey.

Not to get all 'Carpe Diem' on you, but as the saying goes 'The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step'. This is your moment if you have a master plan cooked up to turn Danbury into South Norwalk, New Haven, or Stamford. We've talked many times on the morning show about the problems that Lou faces every day living in downtown Danbury, and we're lucky enough to speak with Danbury Mayor Dean Esposito directly about those concerns.

17 Stunning Danbury Photos Along With Random Odd Facts About the City

The day I took this round of pictures (September 15 or 16th I can't remember), the light all over the city was just perfect.

I decided to pair the images with odd Danbury facts I gathered from prior articles. 

Maybe this works out, maybe not at least I can say "look at this!"

There have been so many times where I've walked out of my house angry, looked up, and a beautiful sunset takes it all away. Here are the most beautiful skies that I've captured over Connecticut over the past 15 years.
