Milford Zoning announces hearings for Plan of Conservation and Development draft
From Planning and Zoning Division office:
DRAFT PLAN OF CONSERVATION AND DEVELOPMENT
Milford, CT.—The Planning and Zoning Board is holding a series of 3 public meetings for the purpose of gathering public comment on the DRAFT Plan of Conservation and Development. The meetings will be Held at City Hall, 110 River Street on the following dates:
Tuesday, August 21st at 6:00 pm
Tuesday, August 28th at 6:00 pm
Tuesday September 4th at 6:00 pm
Copies of the draft are available for public viewing at The Planning and Zoning Office, The City Clerk’s office, and at the Library.
An electronic version will be available on the Planning and Zoning website.
The public is encouraged to share their thoughts regarding the draft POCD.
The Plan provides the City’s roadmap for future development and lays the groundwork for regulation and zoning decisions in the City.
Last adopted in 2002, State Statute requires the Plan be updated every 10 years in order to qualify for discretionary State funding such as Open Space and other competitive grant programs. State law also requires the Plan to not only discuss
built environment and open space, but also transportation, local opportunities
for mixed-use transit oriented development, housing goals, Historic
Preservation, and the protection of Long Island Sound.
The Board has emphasized the need to have broad community input throughout the review process to ensure the Plan reflects residents’ needs and desires, and is representative of the public’s vision for Milford’s future.
These meetings are a continuation of the many public meetings to be held during the almost year-long review and adoption process. The Board welcomes the public to speak at the meeting about the City’s about the topics presented, and to suggest changes that will benefit their community and the City.
