Members of the Danbury City Council will be meeting soon to discuss a proposal to buy a parcel of land next to the Police station. The landlocked property has a home on it that the City would tear down to create a park with a memorial for fallen public safety members who died in the line of duty. Mayor Mark Boughton says the people who lived there have passed on.
The goal is to purchase the land for $120,000 and get the site cleaned up and prepared for a spring construction. Boughton says the pocket park would be a nice green space for the neighborhood while revitalizing that part of Main Street.
The people who lived in the home next to the police station have passed away and there's not a lot of other use for the property.
The Committee, which has yet to meet, will then send their recommendation back to the full Council. A public hearing will be held in August if approved by the Council.
