Danbury Zoning Commission has scheduled a public hearing on a request from The Women's Center of Greater Danbury.  The organization is looking to have a zoning regulation amended to add “Transitional Housing Facility” to the IL-40 Zone. 
 
A public hearing is scheduled for August 28th.  The application was then referred to the Planning Commission. 
 
The 3.7-acre former Mallory Hat Factory on Rose Street would be remediated and turned into the transitional housing facility.  The land is being sold by the City to the organization for $1.  Danbury issued several requests for proposals from businesses over the years, but there weren't any takers. 
 
The Women's Center raised $4 million in capital fund to build the transitional housing.  The group has provided a safe haven to victims of domestic and sexual violence since its founding in 1975. The Center serves 20,000 people in northern Fairfield and southern Litchfield Counties each year.
