MONROE, CT — Does Monroe need more apartments? Is there too much housing in town already? How about commercial development and open space? A community survey garnering input from residents for the update of Monroe’s Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD) is now available online.
Hard copies of the survey will also be available at Edith Wheeler Memorial Library and the Monroe Senior Center.
The Plan, which must be updated every 10 years by state statute, provides a comprehensive roadmap for Monroe over the next decade, covering topics such as land use, open space and environment, housing, transportation and infrastructure, town facilities and services, and economic development.
Town Planner Rick Schultz encourages Monroe residents, property owners, business owners and other interested stakeholders to participate in the survey. The survey is one of many tools the town will use to inform the plan and make decisions about the future of Monroe.
The town has engaged Fitzgerald & Halliday Inc., of Hartford to assist with the update and is working closely with the Town’s Planning and Zoning Department and Commission.
