Public Meeting on Transportation Project Prioritization for The Central Naugatuck Valley 

(Waterbury, CT) – The Central Naugatuck Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization (CNVMPO) invites the public to attend a hybrid public meeting to provide comments on the draft FY 2025 – 2028 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), the draft Air Quality Conformity Determination for the TIP and the Connecticut Department of Transportation’s draft FY 2025 – 2028 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The meeting will take place on Thursday, March 7, 2024, at the NVCOG Offices (49 Leavenworth Street, 3rd floor, Waterbury, CT) from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. A Zoom option is available at 

The CNVMPO prepares and maintains the TIP which outlines the region’s transportation priorities and projects, to be funded by federal and state funds, for the next four years. It includes a list of proposed transportation projects, such as roadway, transit, bicycle, and pedestrian improvements. The public meeting will provide an opportunity for community members, stakeholders, and decision-makers to learn about the proposed projects in the TIP and provide feedback on the prioritization and funding of these projects.  

The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) has developed a draft STIP covering all areas of the state. The STIP lists all federally funded transportation improvements, by federal funding category and by region, which are scheduled to occur over the same four-year period. 

A copy of both draft documents will be available for review at during a public comment period between March 1, 2024, and April 19, 2024. Written comments may be submitted via email to or mailed to Richard Donovan, Transportation Planning Director, at the Naugatuck Valley Council of Governments, 49 Leavenworth Street, 3rd Floor, Waterbury, Connecticut 06702.
