Westport Downtown Plan

Westport, Connecticut

BFJ prepared a Downtown Plan for Westport for the Planning and Zoning Commission in collaboration with numerous local organizations, town officials and residents through an extensive public planning process. The recommended plan included the following key proposals:

  • Retention of major community institutions such as the YMCA and senior center
  • Improving the quality of sidewalks and pedestrian pathways, including the need for greater accessibility to the Saugatuck riverfront
  • Preserving major public open spaces that together establish a unique setting for downtown
  • Creating additional parking facilities to accommodate future merchant and visitor needs
