This is a horrible idea! The traffic is already insane on i-95!
A toll is nothing more than another tax on the working man who is already taxed beyond belief and held hostage by high gas costs.
This town is a mess!
As a born and bred Norwalker I can't get out of here soon enough. With the housing market in the toilet I'm held hostage in this town.
I feel like a dope continually supporting this town and telling friends and co-workers what a great place this is to live.
This town is run by shady Politicians and Unions.
This is a "Public" dock. It should never have been leased for commercial purposes.
So once again commercial gain is put ahead of the environmental impact of ruining the shellfish beds.
....and someone tell me what does a riverboat have to do with the Seaport Heritage of Norwalk? View Comment
You have no clue.
Research the regulations that States like California and Colorado have on their Medical Marijuana laws.
Also, read this study. States that have legalized marijuana for medical purposes have actually seen a DECLINE in alcohol related accidents and fatalities.
Also, did you know that our founding fathers, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both smoked and grew Marijuana? View Comment
Thank you "pfroehlich2004" for posting ACTUAL facts. Politicians like to spin information however it suits them. The only thing I slightly agree with in regards to Boucher's comments is that if the session were dedicated to Education reform, it was not the appropriate time to bring this up.
I fully support a medical marijuana law in this state and will be sure to let both Sen. Boucher and Sen. Mckinney know it.
Here is there website to contact them.... LET THEM KNOW HOW YOU FEEL!

Kudos to the Norwalk Police and Parks and Rec for a great job this past holiday weekend. It was also great to see the Mayor walking around talking with people.
I think they should review the "out of towners" policy. I know it creates revenue for the town in a time where the money is well needed.
Lining up at 6am to fight for tables with "out of towners" has become a bit much. It seems to become a free for all... and on the verge of getting ugly in some cases. The absence of police and parks officials early in the morning was definitely noticed.
Can there be a limit set as to how many "out of towner" spots are sold?
Can they only park at Taylor Farm, leaving the main parking area to residents?
Can the process change, where out of towners must purchase a pass at city hall in advance? ... at least for the Fourth of July weekend?
If the city wants to create additional revenue how about ticketing cars at Marvin School? Make the ticket a few dollars more than the "out of towners" fee.
If your a Norwalk Resident, get a sticker.. it takes all of 15 minutes at city hall.
The fee should definitely be increased to at least $30 like Westport beach.
As a resident who was born and raised in Norwalk and now the parent of 2 school aged children I find this a total disgrace.
Our local politicians are not doing enough to invest in the real things that matter in this town, like Education.
Why would anyone move to this town to raise their children with the current state of the education system?
I love this town but, will be moving out as soon as the real estate markets turns around a bit and allows me too.
When you hear of the shootings and violence in the town related to young adults I can't help but, think if the education system in this town were better maybe these individuals would be more interested in being active members of their communities vs. menaces to society.
While redevelopment maybe important to the city growth, development of our city's youth should take a precedent.
