Commission to OK Norwalk Harbor Dredging Funds

State Senator Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) announced Monday that the State Bond Commission is set to approve critical funding for the Wall Street Place mixed-use development when it meets this Friday in Hartford.

In September, Sen. Duff joined Governor Dannel P. Malloy and Norwalk Mayor Harry Rilling for the start of construction at the site, which will soon be home to more than 100 new apartments and 16,000 square feet of retail business space.

The Bond Commission is expected to approve addition funding for Norwalk on Friday. $358,387 will be approved to reimburse Norwalk Harbor Management for visitor and boat launch dredging, and $418,780 will be approved for Side by Side Charter School for various building renovations; parking lot improvements; and heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) upgrades.

On behalf of the citizens of Norwalk, I thank Senator Duff and Governor Malloy for this vital funding, which will facilitate improvements in key Norwalk initiatives. It will serve as a catalyst for revitalization of our entire Wall Street area and a means of upgrading Side by Side Charter School,” said Mayor Rilling.

“In addition, we are very pleased that Norwalk Harbor Management will be reimbursed for the funds it has wisely spent dredging our harbor to improve access for recreational and commercial vessels.
