Following the TOD Study Progress

In June of 2017, the State of CT Office of Policy and Management (OPM) solicited a request for applications to promote smart growth and/or opportunities for transit oriented development (TOD). The Planning and Zoning Department (with the support of three stakeholder organizations – East Norwalk Neighborhood Association, East Norwalk Business Association and the Third Taxing District) submitted an application in the amount of $225,000.

Norwalk’s proposal sought to build on a well-documented interest locally, state-wide and nationally in developing around transit facilities such as train stations. The application sought the grant funds in order to study two (2) areas in more depth: 1. East Avenue TOD Analysis. 2. Wall Street Train Station Viability and Location Analysis.

On December 27, 2017, the City was notified that the grant had been awarded for the TOD study in the amount of $125,000, specifically for the East Avenue TOD Analysis.

On May 10, 2018, the City put the East Avenue TOD Study out for bid.
