Planning for Trumbull's Plan

Make your voice heard on Monday at a public workshop.

Trumbull's future has yet to be written, and you can be a part of it.

The Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a Sept. 24 workshop from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Madison Middle School regarding the Plan of Conservation and Development. 

"The Commission will ask opinions on matters including land preservation, business and housing development, transportation and many other issues.  This input will help the Commission update the long range strategy for conservation and development in Trumbull," said Jamie Bratt, director of Planning and Development.

Catchy lawn signs have been advertising the event all over town, reading, “Most Fun You’ll Ever Have at a Public Meeting” and urging residents to “Plan Like Your Kids Will Live Here.”

Residents will discuss what they like in town and what they would like to change.  “We want to hear residents’ ideas for the future,” said Anthony Chory, Chairman of the Commission,  “Knowledge about planning or zoning regulations is not required – simply living in the community makes you qualified to contribute. 

The Commission will explore the ideas generated at the workshop as it updates Trumbull’s Plan of Conservation and Development. The Plan will guide the long-term physical development of the Town, Bratt said. 

The Plan is being updated with the assistance of Planimetrics, an Avon-based land use planning and consulting firm that assists towns with preparation of Plans of Conservation and Development. Trumbull’s last Plan of Conservation and Development was adopted in 2006.

I don't know many kids that can actually afford to live in CT. Most choose to leave after college for states with less taxes and better opportunities. CT is so anti business , anti growth and pro taxes , I wonder about all this happy talk. The country has quickly become a different place and not a better one. Most young people I know are smart enough to get outta here. Go ahead and plan, just don't spend money we don't have.

Any statistics to back up your assertion that most kids are leaving CT for other states. That's an interesting statement but I wonder about its veracity.

It's true, unfortunately. Most of my friends since high school and college have gone. I got married this past spring and we're planning it too as taxes and expenses are killing us. There's alot of realistic opportunity out there and CT is stuck in the 60's mentality. It would be nice to stay but it's too anti-business and for excessive taxes and welfare. CT, you can have it.
