Hearings slated to help create new Plan of Conservation and Development
The Planning and Zoning Board is holding a series of three public meetings to gather and exchange information on four topics for the update of the Plan of Conservation and Development. The meetings will be coordinated by Alan Plattus of the Yale Urban Design Workshop and will be as follows:
Meeting #1, topics 1 and 2, The Cherry Street Corridor and Fowler Field, to be held on Monday, June 25, at the Milford Public Library at 6 p.m.
Meeting #2, topic 3, Shoreline Zoning, to be held on Wednesday, June, 27, at the Milford Public Library at 6 p.m.
Meeting #3, topic 4, Walnut Beach Area Improvements, to be held on Thursday, June 28, at the Margaret Egan Center at 6 p.m.
The resulting information from these meetings will be presented to the Planning and Zoning Board at the July 17 public hearing.
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 Milford's 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.
Board members say they welcome the public to speak at the meeting about the topics presented, and to suggest changes that will benefit the community and the city.
