The Danbury City Council has authorized the purchase of 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 land was bought for $120,000.
It will be 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.
