In Stamford, the city's planning board held a public workshop to discuss its master plan.

Every ten years the board is required to update the plan, which serves as a blueprint for local decision making.  

Residents provided input into topics of expansion, building and zoning, public transportation, housing and schooling. The board is scheduled to host more neighborhood meetings. 

In Norwalk, the Planning Committee of the Common Council held a meeting to discuss the West Avenue Streetscape Master Plan and to rename a town road.

After debates on whether to name the street Sherman, Colonial or Morgan place, the vote settled on Morgan Place. The Norwalk Re-Development Agency discussed a landscaping plan that would improve the interstate 1-95 overpass to Connecticut Avenue, the Norwalk YMCA to South of Wall Street and the Wall Street intersection.  

Despite financial challenges the council is pushing for pedestrian friendly elements. 

With May being Older Americans Month, the Greenwich Commission on Aging and the Greenwich Senior Provider Network celebrated with the theme "Unleash the Power of Age." 

Former selectmen Penny Monahan declared May as Older Americans Month for the town. The Commission on Aging's goal is to share the value of the older population.
