You might ask the question, WHY PLAN?
East Windsor continues to be affected by events and trends in the community, the region, the country, and the world. Changes in population, housing, and the economy are influenced by transportation, utility, business and regulatory changes.
From a land use perspective, the major issue facing East Windsor is how to address growth and change so that:
The needs of the community and its residents, both present and future,
are met in the most efficient and cost effective manner;
The character of the Town is maintained; and
The overall quality of life is enhanced.
To provide these most basic things for East Windsor residents, we must plan. The planning process will help us to make intelligent, informed decisions that help produce desired results. We can work together to preserve features that residents most cherish and achieve those things that residents most desire.
The Draft Plan of Conservation and Development was approved on September 9, 2004.
