20 projects across Connecticut will share $11 million in funding under a competitive grant program for transit-oriented development and responsible growth, targeted at boosting economic activity and creating jobs.
Danbury is set to receive $225,000 in state grant money for a Downtown Transit-Oriented Development Planning Study.
The money will be used for research on land use and transportation conditions in the downtown. Recommendations will then be made to further transit-oriented development, responsible growth, and infill development in the City's downtown area. The planning study will also focus on analyzing existing transportation modes of ridership.
