Candidate for Zoning Board of Appeals Alternate | 2019
My name is Stephanie Warren and I am a candidate for the Zoning Board of Appeals. I moved to Killingworth over twenty years ago, attracted by its rural nature and the friendly and positive feel of the Killingworth community, and love living in Killingworth, which is a wonderful community.
In order to give back to Killingworth, I have been serving on the Killingworth Conservation Commission since 2001. In addition to working on conservation projects, as well as Educational projects, displayed at the Killingworth Library. These have included information on Invasive plants, Dangerous (to wildlife) Discards, and several years of essay contests for children. I’ve served as the KCC secretary for the past eight years.
I was appointed to the CT. River Estuary Board (CREPA) and remained on that board until CREPA evolved in 2012 into the RiverCOG and the Lower Connecticut River Valley Regional Planning Committee, where I continue to be an active member. On these two commissions, I have logged in over 12 years. My focus is to ensure that Killingworth town needs are incorporated into regional planning and development projects.
I was elected to the Killingworth Planning and Zoning Commission (KP&Z) and served a term from 2013 2017. I agreed to spear-head the Town Survey that was sent to Killingworth residencies and was responsible for content analysis and statistical compilation of the responses from that survey. Results of that survey were incorporated into the new Killingworth Town Plan of Conservation and Development.
I am now up for election to the Zoning Board of Appeals, as an Alternate member. To that role I will bring my many years of experience with town and regional planning, zoning and development.
It would be a privilege to serve on the Zoning Board of Appeals.
