Keeping local control and using town resources efficiently are among the “key priorities” in the 2015 election platform just issued by the Darien Republican Town Committee.
The committee also urged voters to support its candidates in the Nov. 3 election in the following announcement:
The Darien Republican Town Committee endorses an excellent list of candidates who
exemplify the Republican Town Committee Platform as follows:
The Town of Darien is a mature, fully developed community consisting of several local commercial districts, a wide variety of low to higher density residential sub communities, a top grade public educational system, and a recreational infrastructure that
includes public beaches and parks as well as several private club facilities. As
the Town has evolved over many years, so has its utility and traffic infrastructure
much of which has been sized to accommodate existing residential density,
commercial development and transit related issues.
- Maintain local control and efficient use of town resources;
- Continue to actively engage with the newly formed regional Council of Governments;
- Maintain the residential design and architecture of the town consistent with the Town
Plan of Conservation and Development and the zoning regulations;

- Promote a variety of residential housing for the community, including affordable
housing, consistent with the town’s zoning regulations and infrastructure
