Initiative to bring education, housing and safety improvements to South Norwalk

Education, housing and safety improvements will be coming to South Norwalk in the near future.
The improvement projects are part of the MLK Corridor Initiative, which was discussed Wednesday morning at the South Norwalk Public Library during an open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The city says it has secured millions of dollars, including $3 million from the state, $3.5 million from the SoNo Collection and additional funds from the Norwalk Redevelopment Agency.
The city says the money will go toward investment in education, infrastructure, affordable housing, parks, shelter, community organizations and more.
The city says it's also committing $8.2 million in American Rescue Plan Act money for efforts that will benefit all residents, especially those in South Norwalk.
