10/4/2017 - Public Info Meeting on Design Village Districts Form-Based Code - Oct 4

Town of Canton Public Information Meeting
Design Village Districts Form-Based Code

On Wednesday, October 4, 2017 at 7:30 p.m., the Town will be hosting a public presentation in order to discuss the draft Form-Based Code (FBC) currently under consideration by the Planning and Zoning Commission. The FBC is intended to foster a setting for economic growth and development in a sustainable mixed-use pattern of diverse neighborhoods, integrating residential with employment, commercial, and recreation uses, while seeking to preserve existing neighborhoods and protect the community character. The Code establishes four design village districts and applies to Route 44 from Hart’s Corner to the west-end of Old Albany Turnpike, as well as Collinsville. The FBC places greatest emphasis on the design or physical form, over density and uses, and creating the pedestrian-oriented places that attract jobs and economic vitality. Density and uses can be expected to change over time as the districts grow and mature. The presentation will be held in Room F of the Community Center, located at 40 Dyer Avenue, Collinsville, CT. A copy of the draft FBC can be found at the following:
