To The Editor,

The Public Works Committee of the Common Council will be voting Tuesday night, January 5th to spend $359,000 on engineering plans for changes to the East Avenue Widening and Lowering Project. This project calls for lowering the roadway by three feet, and it calls for taking property from residents and homeowners called easements. 

The East Avenue Widening and Lowering Project has been 17 years in the making. During that time there have been only three public meetings to hear the concerns of the residents of East Norwalk. Unfortunately, these new plans have largely been developed over the last 90 days, are significantly different from the plans the public saw five years ago, and they do nothing to address the major concerns expressed by the residents about increased truck traffic. 

Despite the fact that the Common Council resolutions approving this project back in 2009 call for continued public input, and the fact that the Public Works Committee declined to approve the property takings associated with this project, department staff is asking the Common Council to spend over $300,000 to finalize the engineering plans.

The Mayor has been working on behalf of the neighborhood to secure another public meeting to discuss the substantial changes to this project (which include an additional traffic light on East Avenue and a parking lot where homes have been taken by eminent domain), but has met resistance from the State. Please ask the Common Council to back the Mayor in supporting our neighborhood by sticking to their previous votes and resolutions and delaying the vote on the engineering plans.

Please show up this Tuesday night at 7pm, in Room 231 of City Hall and ask the Public Works Committee not to waste a third of a million dollars finalizing a project before the neighborhood and the Common Council gets to see the new plans.

Debora Goldstein

About this site

NancyOnNorwwalk.com was conceived as the place to go for Norwalk residents to get the real, unvarnished story about what is going on in and around their city. NancyOnNorwalk does not intend to be a print newspaper online; rather, it exists to pull the curtain back and shine a spotlight on how Norwalk is run and what is happening regarding issues that have an impact on taxpayers’ pocketbooks and safety. As an independent site, NancyOnNorwalk’s first and only allegiance is to the reader.

About Nancy

Nancy came to Norwalk in September 2010 and, after reporting on Norwalk for two years for another company, resigned to begin Nancy On Norwalk so she engage in journalism the way it was meant to be done. She is married to career journalist Mark Chapman, has a son, Eric (the artist and web designer who built this website), and two cats – a middle-aged lady and a young hottie who are learning how to peacefully co-exist.
