Windham Center Rezoning
Windham Center Growth Area (Comp. Plan Pgs. 29-30)
The areas of town known as Windham Hill and Popeville are included in this area, which is generally located between River Road and Route 202 (Gray Road), north of Swett Road and south of the Rotary at Routes 302/202 and south of Otterbrook Drive off River Road. As noted above, this area serves as the civic core of the community and as such, more walkable, connected residential development should be encouraged in this area.
The proposed two (2) new zoning districts & affordable housing standards were presented to the public. March 3, 2021 Webinar Recording.
On April 21, 2021 the LRPC finalized revisions to the proposed Zoning Map and ordinance amendments in response to public input. The Planning Board held a public hearing on August 23, 2021. The Town Council asked the LRPC to develop standards for multifamily developments before the Town increased the area for that type of development. The Town Council will discuss revised ordinance amendments on August 16, 2022.
LRPC meetings are held on the first and third Wednesday of each month at the Windham Town Hall, in Conference Room 1, 7:30 - 9:00 am.
Meetings may also be held remotely in accordance with LRPC Remote Meeting Policy adopted December 1, 2021. **Zoom is only available to the public if one or more of the LRPC members cannot attend in person but will be participating remotely**
