STRATFORD, Conn. -- The public is invited to a public information session Wednesday, Jan. 4 to address transit-oriented development in Stratford at the Baldwin Center.
Town officials have pushed for transit-oriented development because they say it promotes both residential and business development by the Metro-North Railroad station, according to the Stratford Star.
In 2016, Stratford officials agreed to allow a "Transit-Oriented Development Overlay Zone District," in place of an existing "transit-centered development zone," the Stratford Star reported.
About a half-mile around the station is covered by this new TOD zone, according to the Stratford Star.
To date, a pair of TOD projects have bee approved by the town's zoning commission, namely, 44 townhouses on a site Christ Episcopal Church owns and 71 apartments on a site Salce Companies' owns on Ferry Boulevard, said the Stratford Star.
In addition, an August proposal by Rolling Thunder II LLC calls for the building of 133 apartments at 382 Ferry Bldg., according to the report.
The public information session will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.
