The unofficial "About Town" version of...

E X I S T I N G    L A N D    U S E    2 0 0 8 :
The unofficial Land Use 2008 map of Weston, Connecticut with analysis

LAND USE LEGEND:
Residential, Open Space, Public-Semi Public, Roads, Utilities, Commercial, Vacant.  No Industrial uses (mills, toy factory, axe tools all gone;  historic districts located along Weston, Lyons Plains and Ladder Hill Roads.

* Please note that the color for "other open space" and "semi-public" are virtually the same--"semi public" includes only the three churches in town.  Consider this mistake by "About Town" as a test--do you know where the three houses of worship in Weston are located?


So what are all those yellow but unsubdivided properties?  What exactly is still vacant? 

U N O F F I C I A L    M A P   (NEW ONE IN PROGRESS) :  Answers to some questions here.
Update #1 - large parcels still vacant.  NOTE:  after consulting assessor's information, some are subdivided but unbuilt, some are in "Forest" classification. 
NOTE:  We have shown Weston Shopping Center's largest adjoining properties in red (commercial), but only the front acres are in commerical use.

Upadate #2 - questions we have, still unanswered, regarding specific parcels

Update #3 - large parcels subdivided since the base map below was developed (in progress).

As did the reassessment company, we started our project at the top of town, too!  Still some questions about particular properties...and "Crystal Lake" (a.k.a. the gravel pit) colored very light blue (as are significant rivers and streams).


TO ENSURE THAT THIS IS NOT MISTAKEN FOR AN OFFICIAL MAP, PLEASE NOTE THAT PARTS OF THE WESTERLY SIDE OF TOWN ARE NOT INCLUDED.
Map above derives from an Aspetuck Land Trust 1992 base map, modified in 1996 for another purpose by About Town (to locate non-conforming lots);  as open land was subdivided for homes, residential color was added to the entire parcel, although there is open space within almost all subdivisions available for public use, as per regulations.  When uncertain, "About Town" checked online sources at the Town of Weston website to determine the ownership and condition of particular parcels.  Please remember that anything on the Internet is not to be considered "official information."
