  • Moratorium/Marijuana Rules Proposal Slated For P&Z Public Hearing

    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.”

  • Thanks To The Voters

    To the Editor:

     I would like to say thank you to all of the voters who came out to the polls on Election Day, November 5th.

     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.
