Newtown Hook & Ladder, Company No. 1, the volunteer fire unit that serves the borough and adjacent areas, has filed plans for its proposed new firehouse for local land use review and action.
The Borough Zoning Commission (BZC) has submitted those plans to the Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) for review and comment. The P&Z serves as the borough’s planning agency.

Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) members are slated to continue a public hearing on June 5 on a proposal to create new zoning regulations that would allow the agency to place a “moratorium” on certain land use applications.
Also, P&Z members are proposing applying such a one-year moratorium on the local growing and/or dispensing of “medical marijuana.”

I am especially honored to be elected to the Planning & Zoning Commission as an alternate and look forward to working with all of the commission members. I appreciate the opportunity to serve the Newtown community to the best of my ability.

As Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) members put some finishing touches on their ongoing decennial update of the 2004 Town Plan of Conservation and Development, they note in the draft text of the 2014 town plan that the December 14, 2012, shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School has left the town a changed place whose future will be affected by the tragedy.
