In general, I'd like to keep Livable Norwalk from getting dragged into the acrimony of city politics. (Rule #1: everybody you disagree with is corrupt and controlled by outside interests!) That said, some issues are too important to livability to ignore.
For the past few years, Livable Norwalk member Jackie Lightfield has been chairing the Zoning Commission. During that time she's worked hard to promote walkable, positive development in Norwalk. She's ensured that new projects are fronted by top-quality sidewalks. She's pushed through a waiver of the fee-in-lieu-of-parking fees for SoNo, in recognition that strip mall-style off-street parking doesn't make sense for SoNo and businesses shouldn't be penalized for not building it. She's also been an advocate for public amenities in projects and public art and beautification efforts.
In short, she's been one of Norwalk's best assets...an advocate for a more walkable, bikeable, livable Norwalk ensuring this vision is incorporated into every new development.
Her position as chair of Zoning expires at the end of the month. The council should reappoint her. Let's keep Norwalk moving in the right direction.
Update: Jackie has a list of Common Council contact info on her blog. I encourage you to reach out to them and ask for their support.
