Vision for the Wagon Shed Properties Special Planning Area
“The Town will promote the development of the Wagon Shed properties to accommodate a mix of industrial and commercial land uses, and open spaces.”
The Wagon Shed Properties encompass 284 acres of undeveloped land on the Western border of Ashford, on Route 44. The Wagon Shed Properties have been designated the Technology Development (TD) Zone and present opportunities for industrial, commercial, recreational, and mixed-use space, and may capitalize off of the UCONN Technology Park being constructed roughly 3.5 miles away. This is one of the few significantly sized group of connected, and commercially zoned parcels remaining in Ashford. It is also the western gateway into Town, for travelers from the Mansfield-UCONN area and the Hartford area.
The development of the Wagon Shed Properties initially depends upon resolving issues with the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) and United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
