The City of Norwalk is currently working in a public/private partnership with the Manresa Association and their consultant, Fitzgerald & Halliday Inc. of Hartford, to conduct an economic analysis and develop a reuse plan for the former Manresa Island Power Plant property.
In support of this effort, a public workshop will be conducted on Monday, May 22 beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the Community Room of Norwalk City Hall, 125 East Avenue, Norwalk, CT. The workshop will begin with an open house session that will be followed by a formal presentation starting at 6:30 p.m.
Residents are invited to take an online survey to help the team and consultants learn more about what you think. The survey is available at the following link: www.surveymonkey.com/r/manresa
The goal of this effort is to assess potential future uses of the property and to identify measures that the City can take to encourage a desirable reuse of the property. Mayor Rilling noted that “the City seeks to ensure that future uses of the site will add to the health and well-being of Norwalk, be complimentary to the surrounding neighborhoods, and will adequately address environmental concerns associated with the site.”
