An off track betting facility could be coming to Downtown Danbury.
The Zoning Commission is meeting tomorrow about the proposal for the second flood of Two Steps Downtown Bar and Grille on Ives Street. The Newstimes reports that the Commission will have to figure out if OTBs can be an accessory use in a restaurant.
The Planning Commission has given approval already and the idea would have to go to the City Council if a zone change is allowed. The published report says that Sportech Venues has exclusive licensing rights in Connecticut and would provide 1.6 percent of gross revenue to City Center. Sportech would renovate Two Steps into a sports bar and restaurant on the first floor, with OTB gaming on the 2nd floor.
The Zoning Commission is meeting at 7:30pm at Danbury City Hall.
