"Danbury [CT] is working to create the "Danbury Innovation Center," as part of the Danbury Public Library ...
The innovation center, Danbury's first, is a combination technology space and business incubator for helping small businesses get started. Similar spaces exist in Watertown, Westport, Meriden, Stamford, Hartford, New Haven, and Providence, RI, among many others nationwide."
"It will be open to the community," Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton said. People who use the Danbury innovation center will pay a monthly fee. The hours and fees have not yet been set, and once the center is running, both the hours and fees are likely to change. The idea is the space would offer high speed computer access and machinery, including woodworking machines and others, such as a 3-D computer printer to help create objects or products. Welding, ceramics and other fields may be added as needs evolve. "This would be a workshop of ideas."
