First Selectman Camillo explains concept for downtown traffic upgrades

GREENWICH, CT – Last week, the Town of Greenwich Department of Public Works (DPW)

presented two potential intersection improvement projects on Greenwich Avenue at the

Planning and Zoning Commission’s pre-application meeting.


During this public discussion, the Department shared the conceptual plans to improve public

safety, accessibility for those with disabilities, and aesthetically revitalize the intersection at

Arch Street and Havemeyer Place, and the Fawcett Place and Grigg Street intersection – two

areas heavily trafficked by both vehicles and pedestrians. Currently, the proposed plan is

expected to add three parking spaces to the Arch Street and Havemeyer Place intersection.

During the meeting, parking along the entire Greenwich Avenue corridor was discussed. There

are various concepts under review for potential future projects on Greenwich Avenue which

could result in an overall reduction in parking. As previously stated, all of these projects are only

in conceptual stages and are subject to change as design options are reviewed and revised.

The current focus is the Arch Street and Havemeyer Place intersection, which will increase

parking. It is important to note that this project will be funded entirely with a grant from the

Western Connecticut Council of Governments.


“I understand and appreciate the concerns and suggestions that have been expressed by

residents, business owners and landlords in this vital downtown corridor,” said First Selectman

Fred Camillo. “I look forward to continuing this dialog.”


The helpful feedback provided by the public during the pre-application meeting has given DPW

the opportunity to continue to evaluate community needs and to further modify the plans. Since

the pre-application meeting, the DPW team is exploring opportunities to create more parking

spaces and accommodate outdoor dining.


At this time, the primary focus is on the Arch Street and Havemeyer Place intersection while the

Department continues to look at improvements at the Grigg Street and Fawcett Place

intersection.


“Please be assured that there will be additional opportunities for the public to be involved in

this process prior to the commencement of construction,” Mr. Camillo added.
