Tuesday night the Common Council approved a $1.8 million plan to make improvements to Cedar Street.

The plan calls for improvements to drainage systems, sidewalks, landscaping and paving, as well as fixing the intersection with Fairfield Avenue.

"It is the gateway coming into South Norwalk," says Mayor Richard Moccia.  "Part of the problem we've had there is that it is run down."

"The sidewalks are all torn up, the curbing is all torn up," says Jim Del Greco.

Del Greco lives on nearby Elmwood Avenue.  He says Cedar Street, which boasts a number of small businesses, needs to be a thriving business sector.

"It's very important this small business district sees some improvement," he says.  "Over the years it's really deteriorated tremendously.

"[The business owners] are saying until things are straightened out with the bridges and the city does its part, they don't want to start investing," Moccia says.  "I think now when they see this commitment, they're going to feel comfortable."

City grants and funds with pay for the project.  The project is expected to begin as soon as a contract is finalized with Deering Construction.  

A tentative goal is to have work complete by the end of the year.
