Some of What the Draft Town Plan Recommends for Darien in the Next 10 Years
Buy land as it becomes available near public schools; consider building a public indoor swimming pool; consider digging a tunnel under the railroad tracks to connect Old Kings Highway South with Old Kings Highway North; “investigate parking options for the library.” These are some of the ideas for what the town government could do in the next 10 years in the draft of a plan to guide local decision-makers for the next decade. The document, called the Town Plan of Conservation and Development, is mandated by state government. The plan doesn’t mandate what the town necessarily will do over the next 10 years, but it does influence town decision-makers. The town Planning and Zoning Commission wants to know what you think of the draft plan before they adopt it as a guideline. You can email your reactions and ideas to email@example.com.
“A plan of conservation and development is an advisory document — it’s not something that dictates what the community has to do,” said Glenn Chalders with Planmetrics, the consulting firm hired by the town to help devise the plan.
