Preserve Easton: Important P&Z Public Meeting this Wednesday, June 20, 7 pm, HKMS. Your attendance is important.

The country-like Sport Hill Road, Firehouse Green and Silverman’s Farm area is at risk.

The Planning and Zoning Commission has released the draft of the 2018-2028 Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD), which will guide the conservation and development of Easton for the next 10 years. It contains many proposals  that you are urged to review (click here for draft POCD). At this Wednesday’s meeting, June 20, P&Z will discuss the plan and hear public input, so attending this meeting is very important.

Among the proposals is a “Village District” (under Section 8-2j of the CT General Statutes) in the Sport Hill Road, Firehouse Green and Silverman’s Farm area. Potential uses for this area could include small retail stores, specialty shops, restaurant, farm and garden centers, craft centers, business, professional offices, public services, post office, and residential. Click here for larger view of area currently proposed. There are many other important items in the POCD, so please take some time to review this critical document.

TAKE ACTION: If you cherish what makes Easton unique and a special oasis amidst the congestion of Fairfield County then let P&Z know that you want to keep the current zoning as is.
