Years ago the City of Danbury approved funding in the budget for basketball courts, but no location was ever found.  Now Public Works Director Antonio Iadarola says the $200,000 will be used to create a court at Rogers Park.  It will be a full regulation size court.  Over the years the Department identified potential locations, but environmental testing showed that none of them would be acceptable locations.  He notes that every square inch of the park is utilized, except one area where there used to be bathhouses for when there was a pool at the park.  An old sewer and an abandoned water main needed to be removed.  Iadarola says they did the design in-house and shoe-horned it in.  This was the only spot left to be able to fit a full sized court with seating around it.  It is handicap accessible.
