Groups huddled over maps and diagrams in Bedford Middle School this evening, but it wasn’t students doing their homework.

It was groups of residents examining infrastructure issues during the last of the public sessions that will be used to build the update to the Westport Town Plan of Conservation and Development.

Each group was handed one of four topics that were community facilities, utilities, transportation and how to better implement the town plan.

Conversations included sidewalks connecting community facilities downtown, providing a shuttle bus from Weston to the train station, drainage into Long Island Sound and improving the town’s power lines so there are less outages.

Volunteers Needed for Mentor Program

By Jennifer Connic

A few caring, patient people are needed to help mentor Westport students.

Patti Haberstroh, who oversees the Westport Mentor Program, said the program has grown tremendously in the four years she has been in charge, and she is in a real need for mentors to work with young boys who have single moms.

“These moms do a great job raising their children, but once they hit puberty they want a male voice in their lives,” she said.

She has four elementary-school-aged boys who need male mentors, she said, but she has no one to match them.

The Westport Weston Health District is planning a series of annual symposiums on how the environment affects health, and will kick it off the series next month with a series on wildlife issues.

The symposium will include panel discussions and community feedback sessions. The first panel discussion is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 27 at 7:30 p.m. at Coleytown Middle School.

Sue Jacozzi, health district director, said the plan for the session is for people to receive the same information and statistics before moving on to discussions about potential problems and solutions.

Wildlife is a great environmental topic to start the symposium series with because people are talking a lot about it, she said, including with deer and geese.
