A final presentation in the Bethel Forward Charrette is being held Thursday night. The so-called "Bethel Forward" plan about the future development of the downtown area, including properties surrounding and adjacent to the Bethel Train Station has been discussed in community workshops for a couple of months now.
First Selectman Matt Knickerbocker says the area would be rezoned to permit new residential and commercial development in an effort to revitalize downtown Bethel.
Planners, designers, and others have listened to the public's ideas and will develop illustrations and architectural designs for downtown Bethel.
The final presentation Thursday is at 7pm in the Municipal Center General Purpose Room.
