Coastal Connecticut Times will dive into local challenges, explore potential solutions, and provide you with the information you need to be more engaged and informed about your community. We're here to help you understand what's happening—and why— in Greenwich, Stamford, Darien, Norwalk, Westport, and Fairfield.
We aim to explore what it means to be part of a growing region in Connecticut that's home to almost 400,000 people:
We'll explore our unique home, one that sits along the Long Island Sound and near various rivers, urban forests, and former industrial sites:
Getting from point A to B can be challenging, no matter what mode of transportation you take. We'll explore the impacts of the Metro-North, I-95, the Merritt Parkway, and various bus lines:
Our local governments spend about $2 billion each year, and we're here to help keep track of where that money is going:
Southwestern Connecticut is the economic driver for the state and home to some of its largest and most diverse cities. It deserves a news organization that is devoted to informing and connecting those who call it home.
These are just a few areas Coastal Connecticut Times plans to explore. We aim to not just state the problems, but also to highlight potential solutions and empower people to engage with their community.
We'll provide stories around issues that residents care about—particularly development, transportation, and the environment—along the coast of Connecticut, from Greenwich to Fairfield.
Hi! I’m Kelly (Kultys) Prinz, an award-winning journalist with more than five years of experience covering everything from the opioid crisis to education funding. I’ve previously worked for The Norwalk Hour, The Burlington County Times in New Jersey, and WFUV in New York, and have freelanced for outlets such as NancyonNorwalk. I moved to Norwalk three years ago with my husband and have fallen in love with this area.
I’m launching Coastal Connecticut Times to provide high-quality, in-depth stories that our communities deserve. As someone who loves this area, I’ve grown frustrated with the lack of in-depth coverage into the issues that matter to residents' quality of life, particularly in the areas of development, transportation, and the environment. I’m starting Coastal Connecticut Times to help residents stay better informed about what’s happening and the reasons behind it.
