Connecticut Public Transportation Commission to meet at Government Center tonight

The Connecticut Public Transportation Commission will hold a public hearing Tuesday May 13 about the Stamford station redevelopment and other public transportation topics at the Stamford Government Center at 7:30 p.m.

The meeting will be held in the fourth floor cafeteria of the Government Center at 888 Washington Boulevard.

Details of the proposed $500 million project to build 1 million square feet of office, residential, and retail space, as well as a hotel and conference center on Station Place and Manhattan Street has been largely withheld from the public as part of confidential negotations between the state and chosen developer J.M. McClutchy Group of Companies.

Members of the commission will also be seeking concerns or criticisms about public transportation operations in Connecticut, including taxi service at the Stamford rail station, and Coastal Link bus service, and the collection of fares on Metro-North Railroad.
