PROPOSED TOWN CENTER ZONING

The Waterford Planning and Zoning Commission plans to update zoning regulations in Waterford’s Town Center. In 2014, the Town completed the Waterford Town Center Vision and Strategic Plan. That plan included suggestions about land use, streetscapes and future development from our border with New London on Boston Post Road through Jordan Village. 

Our current zoning regulations do not provide the tools to support the vision and suggestions laid out in the plan.  We propose an update to the regulations, beginning with the Civic Triangle and Jordan Village.  Our goal is to adopt new rules to support existing property owners, organizations and businesses and lay a foundation for new investment in the area.

Our office held a meeting on Wednesday, September 7th to introduce this project and to hear from people in the neighborhood. Approximately 20 people attended and offered insightful comments and helpful suggestions. You can view the presentation materials here.  We are now busy developing a first draft of regulations for the Civic Triangle and Jordan Village based on the feedback we’ve received. We will post these drafts in October for comment.

Please email your comments and questions to Abby Piersall.
