An electronic sign similar to the one recently installed at Danbury High School is coming to Danbury City Hall. Mayor Mark Boughton says the sign will notice people about meetings and other information. That sign will give everything from road conditions to latest event at the Ives Center.
The design for outside of City Hall on Deer Hill Avenue is being done by the same firm that did work at Elmwood Park, Kennedy Park and the new park slated for next to the police station. He says the design team is working on that simultaneously with the pocket park.
The park is designed to commemorate police officers and firefighters who lost their lives in the line of duty serving the City. Boughton says it will include a water feature visible as drivers come down Main Street, and will serve as a gateway to CityCenter. Boughton says he thinks they've come up with a thoughtful park to be a restful place for people to visit.
Boughton expects bulldozers on site in the next six weeks.
He's been asked why there is no parking planned for the site, and says that's because it is intended as a destination that people can walk to.
