Milford Planning and Zoning Board Says Devon Not Excluded From Conservation Plan
What areas of the city do you think need improvement? Comment below.
State Rep. Kim Rose (D-118) said at a press conference last week that she felt Devon was being excluded from the update process. The P&Z board hired Alan Plattus of the Yale Urban Design Workshop to consult on possible updates to the Cherry Street Corridor, Fowler Field, the shoreline area and Walnut Beach.
Board Chairman Mark Bender said that any Milford resident could comment or make suggestions to the board or the Planning and Zoning Commission. Information collected from public meetings led by Plattus will be presented at a July 17 public hearing.
The process of updating the plan of conservation and development will span almost a year. Although the goal is to have the update done by the end of the year, the board has the option to extend the process if they feel more information needs to be collected.
Members of the board discussed holding smaller public forums hosted by district board members, however, no official decision was made at the meeting. See what some members of the Walnut Beach area discussed at the special meeting last week.
