Envisioning a Vibrant, Improved Downtown

By James Lomuscio

From the outset, Westport First Selectman Jim Marpe and Dewey Loselle, chairman of the Downtown Steering Committee, today thanked the 75 persons assembled in the Bedford Middle School cafeteria for showing up on one of the season’s best days so far to sit indoors for several hours.

Loselle even quipped that he had prayed it would rain as not to discourage attendance at the Downtown Visioning Workshop held from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m.

“But it is so important to have your input today,” Marpe said about the need for a downtown master plan in the wake of current and future development, “Main Street and the Post Road and the area around it are so important to us and the people who visit our town.”

Loselle noted that his group has already received about 2,100 suggestions posted at http://www.downtownwestportct.com, and that he welcomed more.
