Downtown Danbury TOD Wins CNU’s 2020 Urbanism Award

We are excited to share that our Downtown Danbury TOD Study has been recognized by the New England chapter of the The Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) with its 2020 Urbanism Award! This is exciting news for both Goody Clancy and the residents of Danbury, especially considering the record number of award submissions this year for CNU’s neighborhood/district/corridor project category.

Completed in January 2019, the Downtown Danbury TOD Study identifies strategies for more inclusive community life, pedestrian-friendly infill development, enhanced transit service, and more welcoming public places. These strategies aim to accentuate Downtown’s strengths as a historic city center where people can live, work, learn, and play. The Goody Clancy team, including VHB and W-ZHA, led a comprehensive planning process that engaged residents, stakeholders, and public agencies in a series of interviews and meetings. A project task force collaborated closely to develop feasible strategies that will leverage Danbury’s cultural diversity, transit, and history as assets for community and economic development.

Congratulations to the project team on this incredible effort!
