Wallingford Train Station

5 posts in this topic

Looks like they plan on encouraging some transit oriented development around the Wallingford train station:

With the support of the Planning and Zoning Commission, Town Planner Linda Bush is looking into the creation of a downtown transit zone. The zone would overlay the downtown area west of Route 5. Bush envisions the zone spurring the redevelopment of older buildings into new ground-floor retail with high-density housing above.

The zone would mesh with a commuter rail line that will run through the area. It would be created under the guidelines of HOMEConnecticut, a state program that provides towns financial incentives for creating high-density housing.

The HOMEConnecticut program dangles attractive incentives to towns: $2,000 for every housing unit approved within an eligible zone and $2,000 for each unit that is actually built.

Looks like North Haven, Wallingford, and Meriden could get some nice developments to go with the New Haven/Hartford commuter line.

The people of Hartford think of Highways first.

the people closer to New Haven at least think of taking the train occasionally

it might not be part of your life, but taking the train is likely part of someone close to everyone.

its more foreign to our leaders up here unfortunately.

I think if gas prices stay as high as they are many more people are going to be inclined to live in walkable communities with access to mass transit.
