Letter from the Commission and Town Planner
A vision for a better Greenwich, as articulated by our residents, was the basis for this plan. A better Greenwich is one where our property values increase; our children, parents, and workforce have affordable housing options; and our shared commercial and recreational spaces are inviting, safe, connected, accessible, and active. It is where services and amenities are promoted and add value, where opportunities and challenges brought on by growth, climate change, and advances in technology showcase Greenwich as a world class Town prepared to meet the emerging needs of the 21st century. It is where our rich heritage, natural landscape, and topographic diversity are protected. A better Greenwich confirms our reputation as a sustainable, sought after, model community.
The relationship between planning and zoning has always ben particularly close, since the Special Planning Act for Greenwich, approved by the Representative Town Meeting in 1952, placed both responsibilities with the same Commission. This arrangement insures that zoning actions will be in line with the long range plans that are adopted. We are extremely pleased to present to you the vision for Greenwich 2030.
