NORWALK'S FUNCTIONAL GARAGE DESIGN

The Norwalk, CT, Transit District has completed a bus administration, maintenance and storage structure which represents a cooperative effert among government bodies, citizen groups and the transit agency. The site chosen was a former community garden area; public opposition was overcome by involving the immediate community in the planning process. Public meetings involved local residents, city agencies, state and UMTA officials. The neighborhood was closely involved in the design of the structure which resembles a suburban office park on a landscaped site rather than an industrial building. The facility can service and store 30 buses although only 18 currently operate from it.
