Mayor Harry Rilling announced on Wednesday he will be collaborating with local community leaders to form the Norwalk Central Task Force.
He says the new task force will be dedicated to improving parking, revitalizing buildings, and streets in the areas of Main Street, Wall Street and West Avenue.
"This task force will be meeting on a regular basis to discuss what is needed in the area and how we can bring those changes about and go about making Norwalk center...making it more attractive to investors and for businesses to come into and to kind of breathe new life into that area that's been struggling for quite some time." Rilling said.
The task force includes representative Chris Parone, councilman David Watts, councilman Jerry Petrini, Norwalk 2.0 founders Jackie Lightfield and Maribeth Becker, Town Clerk Richard McQuaid, and Dominic Muro.
Rilling says there are currently working on two projects in the Central Norwalk area.
