East Norwalk Transit-Oriented Development
Access to transportation alternatives, such as rail, is one of the most significant drivers of economic growth and can help create a more sustainable community.
Norwalk is currently seeing this type of development around the South Norwalk Train Station and the Merritt-7 Station. However, the East Norwalk rail station sites have seen stagnant or little growth, despite the station being the next stop from the South Norwalk train station. While the development of this area is important to the City, the type and scale of development occurring at South Norwalk and Merritt-7 is probably not appropriate for East Norwalk.
The City has completed the planning process for the future of the area around the East Norwalk rail stations. This study outlines a vision for the future and will help guide recommendations for appropriate uses for the land and scale of market-supportable, development in the East Avenue area surrounding the train station.
The final plan elements include:
- Land Use
- Economic Development
- Preservation/Adaptive Reuse
- Urban Design
- Public and Green Spaces
- Traffic Circulation
