Woodbridge residents and members of the Town’s business community are invited to participate in three preference surveys designed to help create a vision for the Village District and Business District. The Town has hired a planning consultant to update zoning regulations for the Woodbridge Village District and the Business District. The surveys are part of that project. Working with a planner to “help coordinate the completion of Plan of Conservation and Development Action Agenda items and direct the land use development process” was one of the action items in the recently published Plan of Conservation and Development.
The project is focusing on the Village District and Business District because these areas are the Town’s main entry point. The first survey is available now. The second will be posted on June 20 and the third on July 5. They will all be available online through the end of August. People are encouraged to fill out all three.
“I encourage everyone with a stake in Woodbridge’s future to complete these short surveys,” said First Selectman Ellen Scalettar. “Updating our zoning regulations is one of many steps the Town is taking to be more active in economic development and to make Woodbridge a more vibrant community for businesses and residents.”
Survey results will help Town Plan and Zoning Commission to update the Town’s zoning regulations, which will help determine the future use of land and look of buildings and the community. The long-term goal is to create a vibrant mixed use area with commercial and residential uses.
A link to the surveys may be found on the Town’s website under “important links.”
