The Planning and Zoning Commission has scheduled a public meeting at 8 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 9 to get input from Darien residents as part of updating the Plan of Conservation and Development.
The workshop is scheduled to be held from 8 to 9:45 p.m. in Room 113 of the Mather Center in the Town Hall building at 2 Renshaw Road.
A Draft Plan of Conservation and Development has been prepared and the Commission is seeking input and feedback from the community. The Draft Plan is available at Town Hall or on the Town website at www.darienct.gov.
The meeting will provide an opportunity for Darien residents to listen to a brief overview of the Plan elements and then provide comments and feedback.
Following the public meeting, the Planning and Zoning Commission will further review and refine the Plan based upon the feedback received, before considering it for adoption.
A Plan of Conservation and Development is an advisory document used by the Planning and Zoning Commission and other town agencies to:
* Protect the resources important to residents
* Guide growth and change in Darien
* Identify facilities and services needed to support the community we want to be
Darien residents are encouraged to come to the meeting to help ensure that the Plan of Conservation and Development reflects community goals.
