Officials in Norwalk have been talking about the future of the Wall Street area for several years and they are hoping Tuesday’s event helps engage people in the planning.
Much of municipal planning happens in conference rooms with harsh lighting and uncomfortable chairs, so officials in Norwalk wanted to do something much more appetizing and engaging to advance the revitalization of the Wall Street area.
The kickoff event featured some enticing ways for locals to chime in -- there were post-it’s to write on, surveys to take and planners to talk with at a number of design stations. 
“We don't want to talk to you, you talk to us about what you want to see Wall Street look like,” said Jim Travers, director of Transportation, Mobility and Parking.
The mayor and officials say they hope this sends the message that project is moving forward after years of discussion.
