A new plan for the proposed lacrosse fields and parking area was presented.

Resident James Denton sent a letter opposing the plans, stating that traffic in the surrounding neighborhoods would be a problem.

TPZ&C Chairman Walter Clark said the plan is a good one and this location makes the most sense.

Commission member Ralph Aschettino agreed with Clark.

Clark added that if traffic becomes a problem they could easily work on access and egresses.

One of the discussions during this week’s Plan & Zoning meeting was in regards to getting the word out and piquing interest in the Plan of Conservation and Development meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 25.

The meeting will take place in the gymnasium at High Plains Community Center, 525 Orange Center Road from 7 to 9 p.m.

The Town Plan and Zoning Commission scheduled the public meeting to get input from Orange residents regarding the proposed update of the Plan of Conservation and Development.

The meeting will provide an opportunity for Orange residents to identify issues of concern to them and suggest priorities and strategies for the next Plan.  Following the public meeting, the Town Plan and Zoning Commission will be looking at identified issues and evaluating strategies to help guide the community in the future. 

A Plan of Conservation and Development is an advisory document used by the Town Plan and Zoning Commission and other Town agencies to:

  • Protect the resources important to residents
  • Guide growth and change in Orange
  • Identify facilities and services needed to support the community we want to be

Orange residents are encouraged to come to the meeting to help ensure that the Plan of Conservation and Development reflects community goals.

“This Plan is an important document which will be used to guide future conservation and development activity over the next decade and beyond,” said Walter “Beau” Clark, IV, Chairman of the Town Plan and Zoning Commission.
