To the Editor:
The Canton town garage must be relocated to a more suitable site than the beautiful Farmington River, as a matter of law, to add to local employment and business and for recreation and enjoyment.
The Canton Plan Of Conservation And Development (POCD) is a legal document (Section 823 CT General Statute) and the result of a bipartisan effort by a Planning Commission Committee, and approved by Town voters, and made every 10 years as required by law. It is often referred to in State Court decisions as a basis for either approving or denying a planning and zoning commission decision. Any party seeking approval for new construction ignores the POCD at their peril. Including the most recent POCD and going back more than 20 years, among the major goals identified by the POCD for conservation and development of town assets has been to relocate the town garage.
