A number of projects with significant influence in Windsor's future will come before town officials this week.
The town council will take action of funding of improvements to town baseball facilities, but it will also review the town's capital improvement plan through 2018 — a plan that includes the expansion of the public safety complex and the future of Windsor's dog pound.
Perhaps most notable is the inland wetlands and watercourses commission's agenda, which includes a public hearing on the development of a dock, club house, recreational amenities and trail system improvements in the planned Great Pond Village Development.
The public hearing represents the development of a project that will likely change the Windsor families have known for decades.
Planned to be constructed over a 14 to 20-year span, the to a community that added roughly 1,000 residents over the past decade.
The most recent major step in the project was the council's approval of a special Great Pond tax district, allowing members of the community to become financially responsible for the project, and run independently from the town.
The special district, called the Great Pond Improvement District, is charged with owning and paying the debt of bonds issued to finance public infrastructure on the site.
According to meeting documents, the Capital Improvement Plan the town council will review includes more than $20 million in road repair and the possible addition of a $700,000 dog-pound relocation project.
The town council will meet Mon., July 2 at 7:30 p.m. in Town Hall Council Chambers.
The inland wetlands and watercourses commission will meet in council chambers on July 3 at 7 p.m.
