Valley officials are hoping the third time will be lucky for the region to receive federal recognition as a “National Heritage Area.”

DeLauro stopped in Ansonia Thursday (Oct. 11) to announce she plans to introduce legislation that, if passed, would direct federal officials to do a study on whether 14 municipalities should be designated a new “Naugatuck River Valley National Heritage Area.”
