The New Milford's Planning Commission wants your input on the direction of future town planning:
New Milford's Planning Commission wants to hear from the public about where the focus of the Plan of Conservation and Development should be in the next decade.
The town's boards and commissions met Oct. 30 to tell the Planning Commission where they think the focus should go.
A session for public input is set for Saturday Dec. 8 at 10 a.m. in town hall.
Consultant Glenn Chalder from Planimetrics said the POCD is a guide for the town's growth; an advisory document "to point New Milford toward a better future."
Bring your good, bad and ugly list and vent, cheer, screech, or just twiddle your thumbs while you listen to other people heap piles of praise and punches on the Commission. You might want to bring a bag of popcorn too... :)
And as long as you are here reading:
As the holiday season approaches, New Milford Social Services would like to encourage the community to help our clients in the following ways:
If you are interested in helping children or families this holiday, please contact our head elf, Nancy Camp at 354-3286.
Through the Santa Fund, she will give you a specific child to buy a gift and clothing for.
Social Services is in need of gift cards of any kind (gas, grocery, clothing store, restaurant, etc.) until Dec. 14 to provide to families at the holidays, and teen gifts (jewelry, music, gift cards, art supplies, computer accessories, etc.) by Dec. 3 for our Sibling Shopping Spree.
Financial donations to the Good Samaritan Fund are always welcome.
