After months of review, the public can once again comment on the proposed changes to Trumbull's Plan of Conservation and Development.
The workshop, scheduled for Sept. 12, starts at 7 p.m. at Frenchtown School, 30 Frenchtown Road.
"The meeting will begin with an overview of
the strategies in the draft 2014 Plan of Conservation and Development. Residents and property owners will then have an
opportunity to provide comments on the draft Plan and suggest priorities and strategies," said Planning and Development Director Jamie Bratt. "Following the public meeting, the Planning
and Zoning Commission will consider the comments received and review and refine
the draft Plan."
The draft 2014 Plan is available on the web at http://plan-trumbull.com/
The draft Plan suggests a number of programs and initiatives for Trumbull to pursue over the next decade:
- Protecting town character
- Encouraging creation of a walkable “town center”
- Guiding business development
- Investigating ways to address changing housing needs
- Protecting natural resources and linking open spaces together into greenways
- Identifying and prioritizing community facility needs
- Doing more to accommodate pedestrians and bicycles
She urged Trumbull residents to help ensure that the Plan of Conservation and Development
reflects community goals.
“This Plan is an important document which will be used to guide future conservation and development activity over the next decade and beyond,” said Anthony Chory, Chairman of the Planning and Zoning Commission.
