Norwalk, CT – Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) today hailed the state’s announcement that Norwalk will receive $125,000 in funding for an analysis and development of a Transit-Oriented Development Plan for the area surrounding the East Avenue rail station.

The funding is part of a competitive grant program that supports transit-oriented development and responsible growth in the state and is targeted at boosting economic activity and creating jobs. The planning study will analyze existing conditions, opportunities and constraints in order to develop a clear framework and vision for the future of the area, and establish guidelines for design and development.

“For Norwalk to continue to grow as a vibrant community we must plan not just for the next year but for the next generation,” said Senator Duff. “Smart, targeted development like this will boost economic activity, create jobs and improve Norwalk’s livability.”

Build an expandable parking deck on the northbound lot of the ENRR already. Enough studies. Save the $125k for assistance the local businesses will need when the bridge projects cut their business volume in half for the next 5 years.
