[HISTORY: Adopted by the Planning and Zoning Commission of the Town of Stratford, effective 5-8-1965. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Be it resolved by the Town Planning and Zoning Commissions of the Town of Stratford that the following shall constitute the zoning regulations of the Town of Stratford superseding all zoning regulations in effect in the Town of Stratford the day before the effective date of these Regulations and that the same be and hereby are adopted in order to lessen congestion in the streets; to secure safety from fire, panic and other dangers; to promote health and general welfare; to provide adequate light and air; to prevent the overcrowding of land; to avoid undue concentration of population; to facilitate the adequate provision for transportation, water, sewerage, schools, parks and other public requirements; to conserve the value of buildings and to encourage the most appropriate use of land throughout the Town of Stratford. This preface was adopted initially in 1965 when Stratford had a combined Planning and Zoning Commission. The following continue to constitute the zoning regulations on and subsequent to January 1, 1990 at which time Stratford's Planning and Zoning Commission was separated into a Planning Commission and a Zoning Commission.
