7/14/2014 - Fairfield Community Encouraged to Give Input on Regional Plan of Conservation and Development

First Selectman Mike Tetreau announced today that the Greater Bridgeport Regional Council (GBRC) is seeking public comments on the Regional Plan of Conservation and Development. The GBRC is a regional planning organization with six member communities that include Fairfield, Bridgeport, Easton, Monroe, Stratford and Trumbull.

The Regional Comprehensive Plan is a blueprint for future growth and development within the Greater Bridgeport Region. Based on a strong foundation of community input, the Plan guides the region’s governments as they make policy decisions on land use, housing, transportation, infrastructure, economic development, sustainability, and more. A collective vision increases cooperation and communication between governments and develops coordinated approaches to regional problems.

Fairfield residents and business owners are encouraged to go to http://www.hlplanning.com/portals/gbrc/ and fill out the online survey and also use the interactive mapping application where participants can create a community map that highlights issues, opportunities and weaknesses that they have identified. The link to the mapping application can be found at http://www.hlplanning.com/portals/gbrc/project/smap-map-based-community-outreach/. Input is due by Friday, August 29, 2014.

First Selectman Tetreau said, “I encourage the Fairfield community to fill out the online survey and interactive mapping application so they give input on issues like transportation, housing, and economic development that could not only help improve our community but lead to possible grant opportunities.”

GBRC Senior Transportation Planner Meghan Sloan said, “The Plan will describe the future goals and objectives of the community. We appreciate the value Fairfield residents will add to the plan by providing their local knowledge.”
