New Canaan moves forward on sidewalk plan

New Canaan officials are moving forward with a controversial plan to put in more sidewalks downtown.

The Town Council approved a plan this week to extend the sidewalks along Main Street to Old Norwalk Road.

Some residents and business owners along Main Street objected to the plan, but lost during a town-wide referendum.

The Board of Selectmen must now approve a contract for the work to begin.
