Haddam Happenings Annual Survey 2018
Share your opinion on current events and plans in Haddam. We'll share your answers with the appropriate board or commission and publish responses in an upcoming Haddam Bulletin.
TYLERVILLE
As Tylerville makes headlines with the historic house demolition and the planning and zoning commission decides what actions to take, consider the following:
Should Bridge Rd. street frontage be preserved for attractive tourist-oriented restaurants and stores?
Would you support a historic/village district that would ensure historic buildings are preserved?
Should the planning and zoning commission simply support any business development within current regulations?
SCHOOLS
With the student population dwindling, the Regional School District 17 (RSD17) is considering closing a school. Consider the following questions.
Should the district close an elementary school?
If yes, Burr Elementary or Haddam Elementary?
Should RSD17 and RSD4 (Chester, Deep River, Essex) merge into a super school district to better utilize facilities, educational resources, and share administrative expenses?
TRANSFER STATION
Are signs clear, telling residents what can be recycled and where? (i.e.: mattresses, metal, textiles, etc.)
Would you support an additional or larger swap shack?
Other thoughts/ideas about the Transfer Station?

HADDAM CENTER
This is the area near town hall, the library, and senior center.
Should we designate Haddam Center as a historic district to protect the historic buildings?
