Josh when does the Woodward ave and meadow st via South Main st walk take place? Bear in mind Josh if they decide to walk Quintard ave we would provide the protesters and those who feel we are losing a safe neighborhood.Its not fair Norwalk grows safe areas while others get worse based on location , its not the American way.

Imagine what kind of City Norwalk could have become had our Mayors encouraged more Merritt 7’s which according to old timers received no City subsides as do our current Developers building apartments for transients. Norwalk could indeed have become “CT’s Greatest City”. But we are our own captives.
