WEST HAVEN, Feb. 23, 2017 — West Haven’s transit-oriented development plans are featured in the February issue of Connecticut Town & City.

The city is highlighted on Page 28 of the Economic Development section of the magazine, which is published monthly by the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities.

“The city of West Haven has all the ingredients to move forward some economic development goals that center around transportation, people, infrastructure, and governance,” according to the article, titled “Right Track: West Haven transit-oriented development plans move forward,” which contains quotes from Mayor Edward M. O’Brien and Assistant City Planner David W. Killeen.

The story, which includes a color photo of the West Haven Metro-North Railroad commuter station, highlights the city’s plans for its TOD zoning district for the area surrounding the train station, an initiative aimed at “encouraging a more walkable, bikeable, mixed-use and pedestrian-friendly environment,” O’Brien has said.

“With nearly 5,000 residents per acre, West Haven is the fifth densest city in Connecticut behind Bridge­port, Hartford, New Haven, and New Britain. It has the infrastructure in place. There is vacant former industri­al space located just blocks from the train station,” according to the article.
