Woodbridge TPZC seeks opinions on development

WOODBRIDGE >> Residents and the town business community may participate in three online preference surveys about potential development in Woodbridge.

Survey results will help Town Plan and Zoning Commission update the town’s zoning regulations, which will help determine the future use of land and look of buildings and the community.

“Updating our zoning regulations is one of many steps the town is taking to be more active in economic development and to make Woodbridge a more vibrant community for businesses and residents,” said First Selectman Ellen Scalettar.

The town has hired a planning consultant to update zoning regulations for the Woodbridge Village District and the Business District. The surveys are part of that project.

Working with a planner to “help coordinate the completion of Plan of Conservation and Development Action Agenda items and direct the land use development process” was an action item in the recently published Plan of Conservation and Development.

The project is focusing on the district, which is the town’s main entry point.

The first survey is available on the town’s website under “Important Links.”

The second will be posted June 20, and the third on July 5. All will be available through the end of August.

The long-term goal is to create a vibrant mixed-use area with commercial and residential uses.
