UCONN educators to speak on land use issues in Milford

Milford Mayor Ben Blake has announced that UCONN educators Chester Arnold, Michael Dietz and Bruce Hyde, associated with the university’s Center for Land Use Education, will lecture on “Low Impact Development” on Monday, June 18th, at Milford City Hall auditorium at 7 p.m.  Mayor Blake expressed pleasure that the city can provide this learning event for city municipal officials and interested members of the public.  “The opportunity to learn about the latest techniques and tools which can protect our city’s natural resources, reduce the incidences of flooding and lessen pollution will be valuable as we move forward to finalize our updated Plan of Conservation and Development,” he said.

The program’s goal is to help municipal land use officials, staff, commission members and interested citizens understand new techniques to help solve local land use problems and to develop environmentally sensitive land use plans.  The hour-long lecture will be followed by a question-and-answer period.

The program is open to the public.  Persons connected to the development and/or the building industries should find the subject matter of great interest.

This event is sponsored by Mayor Ben Blake, the Mayor’s Open Space Advisory Committee and the Milford Conservation Commission.

Information was received via a press release from the Milford Chamber of Commerce.
