A public hearing is being held tonight in Danbury about a zone change to allow for an off track betting facility in Downtown Danbury. The Zoning Commission will be considering if an OTB facility at Two Steps Downtown Bar and Grille on Ives Street can be an accessory use in a restaurant.
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 second floor.
The Zoning Commission is meeting at 7:30pm at Danbury City Hall.
The Zoning Commission rescheduled the public hearings on two other applications. One is a petition to add Municipal animal control facility a particular zone. Danbury residents recently approved bond money for a new facility to be built. That hearing was postponed from tonight to May 9th The public hearing to clarify regulations about drive-in & drive-through facilities in a certain zone was bumped to April 25th.
