Sandy Hook Action Planning Workshop being held on Wednesday

The Sandy Hook business district is working on an action plan to revitalize the village.  Newtown is partnering with the Connecticut Main Street Center to coordinate an economic recovery consultancy for Sandy Hook Village. 


The workshop Wednesday is being hosted by the Sandy Hook Organization for Prosperity.  SHOP is investigating how to bring more people to the village district for shopping, dining and gathering.  The area recently completed Phase Two of a streetscape project. 


SHOP President Michael Burton said in a statement that the effort is designed to provide a connection from the business district to existing and planned residential neighborhoods.  Two new gathering vistas have ben installed for residents and visitors to relax while strolling through the downtown.  The goal of the marketing effort is to help Sandy Hook Village business and property owners with economic recovery, while creating a vibrant social center. 


The meeting Wednesday is from 5:30pm to 8:30 at the Firehouse on Riverside Road.
