NOVEMBER SNA MEETING!
Please join us at the local library for a conversation with Land Use Bureau Chief Ralph Blessing. Bring your input and questions on Land Use topics: proposed text changes to the Village Commercial District (related to density, building height and the parking ratio), share your insights on Springdale parking congestion hot spots (toward an improved parking ratio for zoning), and talk about zoning violations/zoning enforcement. (Speaking of parking, try the Springdale School parking lot if the library lot is full!)
See you Thursday 11/9 @ 6:45 PM – 1143 Hope Street.
Questions or input or need more information?
Last month’s first-ever Springdale Neighbor Meet-up was a great success!
Thank you to Erin Shea for organizing & Amore for hosting!

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
IMPROVED! TRAIN STATION CROSSWALK Hope near Clearview: Our city Traffic Department created a temporary “visibility island” for cars/pedestrians to see each other. In October underground electrical work for new flashers was done. (SEE flasher example: right)
ALSO IMPROVED: Check out the brighter street lights in the crosswalk area, and increased parking spaces made available in the monthly lot to help offset the lost parking spaces on Hope around the crosswalk. THANK YOU!
The city now has two traffic engineers, Frank Petise (whose bailiwick will include eastern Stamford) and Garrett Bolella — bringing traffic, engineering and planning experience to the job — who will finalize the bike/pedestrian plan.

Flood Insurance Information –
The City of Stamford participates in the Community Rating System, a voluntary program of the National Flood Insurance Program that documents the flood protection measures taken by a municipality and rewards it with a scaled discount on flood insurance rates. The City’s efforts have resulted in Stamford attaining a Level 7 rating, the highest in Connecticut, providing a 15% discount on flood insurance premiums. The discount resulted in $395,299 in savings this year for the community’s 2,696 policyholders.
