Danbury City Council looks into OTB facility proposal

The Danbury City Council took up a proposal last night about an off track betting facility coming to Downtown Danbury.  The proposal was referred to a committee of the whole Council for further consideration.  A public hearing will also be set up.  

 

The Zoning Commission signed off on a text change a couple of months ago amending City ordinances to allow an OTB facility as an accessory use in a restaurant. Sportech Venues, which has exclusive licensing rights in Connecticut, wants to located in Two Steps Downtown Bar and Grille on Ives Street.  Sportech would renovate Two Steps into a sports bar and restaurant on the first floor, with OTB gaming on the second floor. 

 

Danbury would be their 17th location.  The state legislature approved a bill this past session allowing Sportech to have eight more off-track betting licenses, for a total of 24 possible locations throughout Connecticut.
