Naugatuck Valley residents will have the opportunity to provide input to a major transportation planning study being conducted by the Naugatuck Valley Council of Governments (NVCOG) in March and early April 2018 via charrettes and an online survey. The study is assessing alternative transit modes within the Route 8 / Waterbury branch rail line corridors and developing transit-supportive land use plans in and around rail stations and transit hubs located between Naugatuck and Shelton.
The study team comprised of several consulting firms, incorporated information and data on the existing conditions within the corridor into an initial round of charrette presentations in November and December 2017. The five follow up charrettes will give stakeholders, local officials and residents the opportunity to provide feedback on preliminary study recommendations. The Study Team will be presenting preliminary “model” concepts based on the input from the first round of Charrettes. Each charrette will focus on that community’s transit hub. All events are from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
