The Village District proposal in the draft of the 2018-2018 Plan of Conservation and Development will put this country-like area at risk.
Monday, October 29, 2018, 7 p.m. at Helen Keller Middle School is the official Planning and Zoning public hearing during which residents can speak regarding the updated 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. Your attendance is critical.
Among the proposals is a “Village District” (Section 8-2j of the CT General Statutes) in the Sport Hill Road, Firehouse Green and Silverman’s Farm area. The proposed POCD lists that possible uses for that area could include small retail stores, specialty shops, restaurant, farm and garden centers, craft centers, business, professional offices, public services, post office, and residential. The Firehouse Green and Silverman’s Farm area are a special part of Easton’s identity. More stores, traffic, congestion, lights, and commercial businesses will put this country-like area at risk.

There are many other important items in the POCD, so please take some time to review this critical document.
