Arthur Murray Ballroom hosts business awards tonight

Giving people a chance to honor local businesses, the Greenwich Board of Selectmen unanimously approved a one-night partial road closure of Lewis Street on Oct. 10.

On that night, the Arthur Murray Grande Ballroom of Greenwich, at 6 Lewis Street, will be hosting the Fairfield County Family Owned Business Awards in conjunction with WAG Magazine. As part of this event, the studio will be partnering with local dealerships to display luxury cars outside the building, necessitating the temporary closure of this one area of the road. The studio had already developed a traffic plan with the Greenwich Police Department, so the selectmen’s approval was all that was needed.

“This is to honor the entrepreneurial spirit of the small, family business,” Christine Georgopulo, owner of the dance studio, told the selectmen. “Greenwich has a huge stake in that so we’re honored to have this opportunity.”

The closure will be in place on Thursday, Oct. 10, from 5 to 10 p.m. It will go from Lewis Street’s intersection with Greenwich Avenue to the Liberty Way municipal parking lot next to the dance studio’s building. The studio will work with the town’s Parking Services Department to rent impacted parking spaces for the evening and Christopher Bristol, who is representing the studio in this matter, told the selectmen they would get all the other needed approvals for the event.

“Everything will be in place and queued up properly,” Mr. Bristol said.

The selectmen quickly granted their unanimous approval for the event as Selectman David Theis called it a “great idea.” Ms. Georgopulo invited all the selectmen to attend and First Selectman Peter Tesei indicated he would be available to deliver a few remarks.
