Representatives of 11 of the 23 towns and cities in Fairfield County met to discuss preserving the architectural heritage of the communities. Jim Leahy, a strategic planning consultant, led the session.

Additional meetings will be held June 16 and July 7.

The FCPT’s primary mission is to educate and advocate the preservation of historically significant houses, buildings and landscapes and to preserve the unique New England character of these communities that are threatened by sprawl.

John Lupton, former executive director of the Westport Historical Society, is the founding president of FCPT.

  1. I’m afraid the newly-formed FCPT is great but late!. Too many historically significant houses, buildings, and landscapes have already been destroyed, and the unique New England character of the community is long gone!
