What’s Your Vision For Downtown Danbury? Speak Up Now
If you've been waiting for the opportunity to transform City Center Danbury into a River Walk district lined with shops and coffeehouses, or change the zoning in Danbury to allow an indoor pickleball facility on Main Street, step up to the plate slugger.
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.
