DANBURY — A sober discussion about preserving Danbury’s history before more of it is lost became animated this week when leaders agreed on the need for a new department of cultural affairs to spearhead a revival of the city’s heritage.
“It is a recognition of arts and culture and how important it is in our community and how it plays into who we were and who we are and who we will be,” said Sharon Calitro, the city’s top planner, and a member of a task force writing a master plan for the next decade. “With all due respect to volunteers, there should be somebody at the city level coordinating public art.”
