OUR NEXT MEETING IS SEPTEMBER 24th, 2018

PLEASE NOTE VENUE: WALL STREET THEATRE 71 WALL STREET

(Our meetings are held the 4th Monday of the month, unless noted here due to holidays....)

CNNA INVITES THE PUBLIC TO A SPECIAL EVENT: "WHAT'S UP WITH NORWALK'S WALL STREET?"

What’s Up with Norwalk’s Wall Street?

Norwalk’s urban core—the Main and Wall Street area— has been a hot topic lately with various plans, options and opportunities being currently discussed.  Separating the facts from the rumor can be a challenge. Staying up to date on the issues may be difficult. That’s why the Coalition of Norwalk Neighborhood Associations (CNNA) is hosting “What’s Up with Norwalk’s Wall Street?” on Monday, September 24th at the Wall Street Theater, 71 Wall Street.

 CNNA has invited key stakeholders to present their views and answer your questions about the factors supporting growth as well as the challenges ahead. Panelists include former zoning commission chair and founder of Norwalk 2.0 Jackie Lightfield; building owner and businessman Michael McGuire of Austin McGuire Real Estate; developer and  business owner JasonMilligan; and Redevelopment Agency Director Timothy Sheehan.  

CNNA’s business meeting is scheduled for 7 PM and the panel discussion for 8 PM. Parking is available at the Yankee Doodle garage or at the Mechanic Street lot (behind the Norwalk Savings Society building) for a flat fee of $1.00 after 6 PM or at 23 Isaac Street for free.

CNNA expects a robust and open discussion to gain insight into what should – and shouldn’t – happen to revitalize the Wall and Main Street area.

CNNA’s mission is to advocate on behalf of Norwalk's neighborhood associations and groups to promote informed and active participation of citizens in Norwalk’s governing bodies to preserve and enhance the integrity and character of Norwalk's neighborhoods.  To accomplish this, CNNA solicits fair and equal participation of each constituent association and neighborhood group to address issues of interest that have an impact on quality of life in Norwalk as well as inform members of important upcoming issues, plans and decision, and meetings.  CNNA hopes to sponsor more of these opendialogues throughout the coming year.

For more info, or to RSVP (not required, but helps us plan effectively) please email CNNAconnect@gmail.com

    ATTENTION ALL ASSOCIATIONS & RESIDENTS


    BE A PART OF DECIDING THE FUTURE OF NORWALK.... CNNA MEETS MONDAY

     

    The monthly meeting of the Coalition of Norwalk Neighborhood Associations (CNNA) is on Monday, March 27th, 7pm in Room 101 at City Hall.                 

     

    The primary topic will be the city's creation of the 2018 Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD) or often referred to as the "Master Plan", with an overview of the project process, followed by a discussion to agree on CNNA action steps to ensure extensive input from Neighborhood Associations and residents.

     

    The state requires that the POCD is reviewed and updated every 10 years - it is the guiding document for development in the city, including consideration for housing, environment, transportation, recreation & open space, infrastructure, governance, schools, public safety services, historical preservation, conservation and sustainability. CNNA believes the POCD should be the blueprint for the vision, development and growth of the city and we are seeking members to participate on the CNNA POCD development sub-committee.

     

    A  copy of the 2008 plan can be found at this link: http://norwalkct.org/DocumentCenter/View/389

     

    All residents of Norwalk are always welcome, and CNNA Member Associations are each urged to send at least one representative to our monthly meetings.
