Connecticut Public Television (CPTV) is reportedly seeking to expand its production facilities to Norwalk.
According to a report in The Hour, CPTV is proposing a 15,000-square-foot facility covering two adjacent properties on Wall Street that is owned by the Fairfield County Savings Bank. The proposed facility would be next door to the Wall Street Theater, a 102-year-old venue that is being renovated as a performance space. The PBS affiliate has already held meetings with city officials and has submitted blueprints for the project.
The budget for this project could be as high as $9 million, with $2.5 million coming from a state bond issuance and the rest through loans and grants. Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) has been a leading proponent in bringing CPTV to the city.
“This is a concept and a project that I’ve been working on for the better part of a year-and-a-half,” Duff told The Hour. “We hope to have an announcement soon, because this can be very exciting for the city of Norwalk.”
