A new Council of Large Towns has been created in Connecticut. Danbury is part of the new Council of Large Towns. The largest municipalities in the state formed the coalition as a part of the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities. Their goal is to discuss issues relevant to large cities including the property tax structure, regionalism, workforce development and quality of life. The quality of life issues included blight, illegal use of ATVs or dirt bikes on public streets and group homes or sober homes. The group of cities plan to address specific topic areas rather than forming subcommittees.
