The New Milford Town Council has unanimously voted to approve a new Town Planner. Kathy Castagnetta will be New Milford's first Town Planner since 1988. After the vote last night, Mayor David Gronbach said the former zoning enforcement officer, and current Woodbury Town Planner, would start her work on the 26th. Gronbach is advocating for intelligent growth, while maintaining the characteristics that makes New Milford unique. The Town Planner position is included in the Town Charter, but has been vacant for many years. Castagnetta is a certified Planner, Zoning Enforcement Officer, and Wetlands Enforcement Officer. She also serves on the New Milford Forest and Farmland Preservation Committee.
