Stein postpones planning meeting
By Michael Marciano
BARKHAMSTED — Tuesday and Wednesday’s onslaught of snow forced Barkhamsted First Selectman Don Stein to cancel a public meeting this week regarding conservation planning in town.
“Due to the weather forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday, we will be postponing the public information meeting for the DEP Farmington River Enhancement Grant until Wednesday, Feb. 9, at 7 p.m. in the Barkhamsted School cafeteria,” Stein said in a press release. The meeting had been originally scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 1.
Barkhamsted was given the Farmington River Enhancement Grant in the fall of 2009 to study low-impact development (LID) in and around the Farmington River watershed. LID is used to describe land planning and engineering to manage storm water runoff, with a focus on conservation. It can apply to road and driveway construction, housing or commercial developments or managing residential water and runoff.
The meeting, announced in a postcard mailed to Barkhamsted residents, will allow attendees to offer feedback on the results of the study before recommended regulatory changes are forwarded to the Board of Selectmen and the Planning and Zoning Commission.
