Norwalk seeks public input on Wall Street redesign

NORWALK — The city is seeking public input on plans to revitalize the Wall Street area, including a makeover of the Yankee Doodle Garage.

On Tuesday, the city’s Transportation, Mobility and Parking Department will hold an event to gather the public’s opinion at the Wall Street Theater.

The event will run from 4 to 8 p.m., with remarks from Mayor Harry Rilling and several Common Council members around 5:15 p.m., TMP Director Jim Travers said. To maximize public response and attendance, the event will be an open-house style, with tables featuring different aspects of Wall Street that the city is seeking feedback, Travers said.

“We wanted it to be participatory in nature. We’re going to have stations on the inside and two information stations and a ton of old photos of Wall Street,” Travers said. “Inside will also have ‘a taste of Wall Street.’ We went to restaurants and asked them to supply appetizers we are buying. On the main floor, there will be four tables you can go to and discuss different things you like about Wall Street.”
