Danbury officials seek grant to create Riverwalk, make downtown more walkable

Danbury officials are applying for a grant through the AARP to make parts of the City more livable for all ages.  The Downtown Danbury Transit-Oriented Development Study introduced the idea of a Riverwalk, and making downtown sidewalks more walkable.  The Departments of Public Works, Public Health and Planning and Zoning are applying for $80,000 in grant funding to improve the underutilized sidewalk along the Still River.  The area they're looking to improve is along Lee Hartell Drive from White Street to Crosby Street.  If approved, the grant funding would also create an interactive sidewalk playscape and a public art program.  A stamped crosswalk would provide access across White Street to National Place as a safe crossing to the Danbury Green.
