RTM Panel Endorses Council of Governments Initiative

The Planning and Zoning Committee of the Representative Town Meeting (RTM) Tuesday night voted 6-0 with 2 abstentions to recommend to the full RTM that Westport approve changing from membership in a regional planning agency to a Council of Governments (COG). Proponents of the shift, including First Selectman Gordon Joseloff, said converting from the South Western Regional Planning Agency (SWRPA) to a COG, as most other regional agencies in the state have already done, would create more efficiencies and potentially give the region a stronger voice in Hartford. Such a move would occur only if legislatures of five of the eight SWRPA member municipalities approve. The RTM will vote on the proposal at its meeting on Tuesday, March 6.  (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
