Reps. Harding and Carter Applaud Bond Commission Grants to Danbury

DANBURY – State Representatives Stephen Harding and Dan Carter (R-Danbury) today commended the Legislature’s Bond Commission for approving approximately $5,351,000 in grants for the city of Danbury.

The projects covered by this funding include the construction of a new dock yard on the Danbury branch line in Norwalk, improvements to the Danbury Department of Developmental Services Center, renovations to Richter House in Richter Park, and support for the Family & Children’s Aid and the Hispanic Center with Grant-in-aid.

“I am excited that these projects will finally be getting underway,” said Rep. Harding. “These are important improvements to our district’s infrastructure, and I know that our services and residents will greatly benefit. I thank the Bond Commission for their support,” he said.

“The improvements to the dock yard in Norwalk, which is receiving the majority of these grants, totaling $4 million, will allow the state to increase capacity and reliability on the Danbury line, benefiting riders from Danbury who rely on the train each day to commute to and from work, school or other commitments,” said Rep. Carter.
