Norwich, CT, Vies for Waterfront Improvement Funds A proposed $5 million bond for Thames River waterfront improvements would amount to [Norwalk’s] portion of public-private investment in a long-dormant city asset that could bring manufacturing and jobs back to areas where they once flourished, Mayor Peter Nystrom said.

Nystrom submitted the $5 million proposed ordinance at the August 1 City Council meeting, and the council will hold a public hearing at 7:30 p.m. [today] on the proposal before voting whether to place it on the November ballot for a referendum.

Voters must approve any bonding for more than $800,000.
