NORWALK, Conn. — State Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) recently urged the Norwalk Common Council and Norwalk Redevelopment Agency to approve the proposed Norwalk retail development dubbed The SoNo Collection.

“I respect the time and effort that members of the Common Council and Norwalk Redevelopment Agency have put into making the initial proposal by the developers a better one, but now it’s time to move from concept and conversation to shovels in the ground," Duff said in a press release. "August is a very important month for the project’s timeline and proposed opening. It’s time to say ‘yes.’ The SoNo Collection will bring in thousands of jobs to Norwalk, millions in tax revenue and right now there are two prestigious and nationally known retailers ready to invest. I know that the story will get better and better once the project is given the final green light.”

Duff said the state has invested millions of dollars in the area for infrastructure improvements with an eye on transforming the area to into one that will benefit the city and the state.

“In order to have an October 2018 opening, there are a set of very strict deadlines that must be met," Duff said in the press release. "The council and redevelopment agency need to make this a top priority for the citizens of our city.”

If the agency and council act in August, the developers can file for zoning approvals, Duff said in the press release.
