Meeting tonight focuses on Walnut Beach
The third of a series of public meetings aimed at gathering and exchanging information on four topics for the update of the Plan of Conservation and Development will be tonight. The meetings will be coordinated by Alan Plattus of the Yale Urban Design Workshop for the Planning and Zoning Department.
Meeting #3, topic 4, Walnut Beach Area Improvements, will be held on Thursday, June 28, at the Margaret Egan Center at 6 p.m.
The resulting information from this and earlier 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.
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.
