DANBURY, Conn. (AP) — A new $35 million Armed Forces Reserve Center is opening in Danbury.

The Army Reserve’s 99th Regional Support Command and the Connecticut National Guard have planned a ribbon-cutting ceremony next Friday to dedicate the 96,000-square-foot facility. It will be home to approximately 600 soldiers assigned to four Army Reserve and two National Guard units.

The building will be named in honor of veterans from Danbury.

Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy and Maj. Gen. Margaret Boor, the commanding general of the 99th Regional Support Command, are scheduled to be on hand for the dedication ceremony at 90 Wooster Heights Road in Danbury.
