Great things happen when people work together towards a common goal.
This sentiment is clearly being illustrated by the formation of Norwalk Now,
a marketing organization dedicated to promoting and supporting the
dining, retail, and recreational businesses
that make up Norwalk’s Urban Core districts
(SoNo, West Ave, and Wall Street).
Due to the substantial financial long term investment made by the
Norwalk Parking Authority,
Norwalk Now is now a reality.
