Stamford Advocate share: Summer art takes shape in Stamford


STAMFORD — Art in Public Places will return this summer with a familiar theme.
Forty white, fiberglass statues — shaped like cubes, spheres and pyramids — landed in Stamford this week, blank canvases ready to be transformed into colorful odes to the City That Works.
Artists from Connecticut, and a few from New York, have submitted 200 statue design proposals in hopes of getting sponsored by a local business or supporter of the arts. The Stamford Downtown Special Services District (DSSD) will narrow the proposals to 65 and 40 finalists will receive sponsorships.
About $175,000 needs to be raised to complete and display the 40 statues.

Stamford Announces First-Annual Walk to Work Day - April 7

Here's what going on...


City of Stamford

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                            Contact: Libby Carlson
March 29, 2017                                                                                   Phone: 203-977-5115

Stamford Announces First-Annual Walk to Work Day
STAMFORD, CT -- Thousands of Stamford residents and commuters are encouraged to walk to work on Stamford’s first annual Walk to Work Day on April 7, 2017, part of National Walk to Work Day. To mark the event, City officials and local organizations will gather at the Stamford Transportation Center Concourse between 7:30-9:00 a.m. to celebrate this public event with free coffee, snacks, safety education information and giveaways.

“National Walk to Work Day is a great step forward for Stamford to encourage walking as a healthy part of everyday life,” said Ted Jankowski, Director of Public Safety, Health and Welfare. “By finding a way to make walking part of your day, you are walking a path to a healthier lifestyle with proven health benefits.”


   “In Stamford we are committed to making it easier for people to use all modes of transportation, including driving, biking, walking and public transportation. Walking gets people out of their cars especially during key rush hours, improves the health of residents and provides important benefits to the environment. We hope that residents will consider walking to work as a healthy alternative to get around the City. Improving our streets and making them safe continues to be a priority for Mayor Martin and our department,” added Jim Travers, Bureau Chief from Transportation, Traffic and Parking.

The dense layout of Stamford within close proximity to public transit, shops, parks and jobs makes walking for short trips easy. Achieving safe streets is a top priority in Stamford. The Mayor’s Stamford Street Smart Initiative is supporting projects to improve the experience of non-motorists throughout the city, especially along main transit corridors like Washington Boulevard. 

In September 2016, the City participated in a Road Safety Audit through Connecticut Department of Transportation’s Community Connectivity Program, which is an assessment process that identifies safety issues and counter-measures to help improve safety and reduce crashes. According to the state DOT, the primary goal of the Program is to make conditions safer and more accommodating for pedestrians and cyclists, thereby encouraging more people to use these healthy and environmentally sustainable modes of travel. At the same time, these improvements will make Connecticut’s community centers more attractive and livable places to live and work. 

The City of Stamford has already begun implementing a number of counter-measures suggested by the program, such as signal timing updates along Washington Boulevard between Station Place and Tresser Boulevard, which is a major multi-modal corridor connecting thousands of commuters to jobs every day.

Walk to Work Tips:
  • Use Google Maps or other resources to plan your walking route
  • Stick to routes that feel safe and are well-lit
  • Wear supportive shoes
  • Be prepared for the weather
  • Carry a water bottle
  • Sweat happens, so be prepared to spruce up at work

Sponsors of Walk to Work Day include: the Stamford Street Smart Initiative, Stamford Health, CTrides, Stamford2030, and People Friendly Stamford.

Rotary Golf Outing - May 11

From the Stamford Rotary:

Hello friends. Please join us for our annual Golf outing on Thursday, May 11th at the Country Club of New Canaan. This is a wonderful event where all proceeds that are raised go to Rotary International's major initiatives - Polio Plus, clearing land mines in Cambodia, and new water treatment systems in Africa. Last year, our donations went to Polio Plus. We are SO close!

If golf is not your thing, please come to the reception immediately following the round of golf. The company, drinks, and food are all top shelf!


We look forward to seeing you there.

Yours in Rotary,

Daniel Morris
Immediate Past President    #stamforddowntown
