More than a dozen Waterbury police officers descended on Hillside Avenue in Waterbury Tuesday around 8pm. One Waterbury police officer questioned two young women as four officers scoured a lawn with high-powered flashlights. Neighbors told the Observer they hadn't heard any gunshots, and moments after this image was taken, the Observer was ordered back as the police extended the crime scene an additional 50 yards.

Protect our Neighborhoods and our Quality of Life: Purchase Open Space
Acquisition of passive open space property should be a goal of the City of Waterbury in order to enhance the quality of life of all residents and to avoid overdevelopment of the limited remaining land. This effort should include acquisition of certain proposed condominium and apartment development properties such as Western Woods on Park Road (133.68 acres, open space value $1,750,000), Stonebridge Commons on Highland Avenue (38 acres, estimated open space value $500,000) and Essex Ridge on Suffolk Street (9 acres, estimated open space value $118,000). --- Waterbury Neighborhood Council
