A transit-oriented development study for the East Norwalk train station is moving ahead, with the Norwalk Common Council expected to formally select a Milford firm to conduct the study tomorrow night.
Harriman Associates is expected to be approved by the common council to analyze existing conditions, develop a framework and vision for the future of the area around the train station on East Avenue and establish guidelines for design and development.
The study is being funded by a $125,000 grant from the state. “Transportation isn’t just about cars, trains and buses – it’s about building vibrant communities and continuing to make Connecticut a more attractive place to live, visit, and do business,” said Gov. Dannel Malloy in announcing the grant – part of a $15 million package of TOD grants that also included $450,000 for Stratford’s Complete Street Technical Design — last December.
The East Norwalk study is expected to begin later this month.
