While residents always have an opportunity to interact with their local government — elected and appointed officials — this year brings a once-in-a-decade chance to make an impact on Wilton’s future. It’s the updating of the Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD). The community’s first opportunity is tonight, Feb. 8, from 7 to 9:30 in the Wilton High School cafeteria.
This plan offers a blueprint for how Wilton will “work” in the future. It sets forth the community’s long-term vision for the town. It offers goals and objectives on how land is used and how growth will be accommodated. What are the goals for conservation? It is the essential guide to local decision-making and policy over the next decade.
