Planners approve Danbury Proton's cancer center application

The Danbury Planning Comission has approved Danbury Proton's bid to create Connecticut’s first cancer center to use proton therapy.  The state Office of Health Strategy is still considering the proposal.  The single-story 16,000-square-foot facility would sit on 3-acres on Wooster Heights Road.  The technology aims to kill tumors with a minimum of damage to healthy tissue.  The specialized treatment center would add 300 trips a day.  Some area residents expressed concern about the 80 million dollar project during the public hearing earlier this month.  The cancer treatment center would donate land to the City for future roadway improvements along Wooster Heights Road, including the Lee Farm Drive intersection.
