NORWALK, Conn. — The City’s website has transitioned from “.org” to “.gov.”
“The City of Norwalk made the decision to switch to .gov because .gov domains are reserved exclusively for U.S. government entities and provide a clear and trusted indication to the public that the website they are visiting is an official government website and not a fake or malicious site,” Mayor Harry Rilling said in a news release. “Additionally, .gov domains are subject to stricter requirements and security standards, which will help prevent cyber-attacks and protect sensitive government information.” Continue reading City upgrades website to .gov, dropping .org

NORWALK, Conn. — Norwalk resident John DiDomizio has donated a state-of-the-art, 185-gallon saltwater aquarium to the Norwalk Public Library and paid for five years of maintenance.
“This is a very special kind of donation. There are many wonderful benefactors who will donate something wonderful to the city, and then leave. That’s not what John has done,” said Alex Knopp, Norwalk Public Library Board of Trustees member, said Thursday at an event celebrating the donation.
“I’ve lived in Norwalk for 45 years now, and which is 60% of my life, and I figured it was time to do something for the city,” DiDomizio said.

NORWALK – The Norwalk Planning and Zoning Commission voted 6-2 Wednesday to approve plans for 1 Cemetery St., which call for building 77 apartment units, of which seven would be workforce units; 102 parking spaces and additional on and off-site improvements. The approval came despite dozens and dozens of residents speaking out against the project, even more writing letters to the commission, and more than 700 residents signing a petition asking the developer to scale the project back.
