Substantial rumoring about a new "Greenway" along Route 7 here in Wilton.

A New Greenway Along our Route 7 in Wilton! There is substantial rumoring about a new "Greenway" along Route 7 here in Wilton. Years ago, the state bought up, using eminent domain, a lot of land along the old Route 7. The intention was to build a huge Super 7 the whole way from Danbury to Norwalk. Norwalk approved the state's building a Super 7 through most of the town, to the Wilton border. There it stopped, as Wilton wasn't so sure that this was what was in the best interest of its residents. Law suits ensued for many many years, environmental issues were raised, etc. Now, it appears that there is no money left, even if the highway were to be approved, so the residents are fighting for the "Greenway" to be located on the empty land. This will be a fabulous, long, flat wide strip along the Norwalk River all the way up to Danbury, where all can walk, bike, run, rollerblade, or anything else you would like. I think that this could perhaps also be beneficial to our real estate values, and increase our home prices. How fabulous would that be? I cannot wait for the New Greenway Along our Route 7 in Wilton!
