Sidebar Middletown's Plan of Development

2010 Approved Plan of Conservation and Development Amendment

This document is intended to be an update of the 1990 Plan of Conservation and Development. It is the intent of the Planning and Zoning Commission to keep the 1990 Plan of Development in effect and to adopt this document as an “Action Supplement” to the 1990 plan. This document will identify specific actions, which Middletown must take now to confront the myriad of challenges that face mid-sized cities in Connecticut.

1990 Approved Plan of Conservation and Development

This Plan of Conservation and Development has been guided by several key principles which will help shape the future vision for the City of Middletown. These principles are in part based on the findings of the resident's surveys carried out during the initial stages of the planning effort. They also reflect and build on the recommendations described in the 1990 Plan and in subsequent studies such as the 1993 Open Space Plan prepared by the Conservation Commission and the Vision 2000 report prepared for downtown Middletown.

The key principles used to guide the future strategic plan are as follows:

  • Limit the sprawl of Low-Density Housing
  • Encourage infill Development
  • Attract Office and Light Industry
  • Protect Natural Resources
  • Emphasize Downtown as the Community Focal Point
  • Increase Access and Use of the Riverfront
  • Improve Design Quality of Development
The following links are the specific issue chapters of the plan that go into detail about how Middletown should implement the principles described above: The following are informational documents created in 2002 on various issues in Middletown:
