About the Coalition

The Coalition advocates  for open discussion, free of partisanship, about projects and improvements that enrich the unique character, quality of life, and value of Westport. We share an active, not a static, vision for the Town that considers the needs, both now and in the future, of all Westporters to provide lifestyle choices that enrich our lives.  You can help The Coalition for Westport realize these objectives by becoming involved in the work we do.

The history of the Coalition for Westport

The Coalition for Westport (CFW) was founded in 2012 by a group of long-time Westport residents, the majority of whom were current or former members of the Planning and Zoning Commission.

Our founding members—a non-partisan mixture of Democrats, Independents and Republicans— were united in their belief that the P&Z decisions were being based far too often on “preserving the past” as opposed to take into sufficient account the future needs of our town and the priorities and desires of our residents.

The evolution

The CFW has evolved into a formidable political party that has run its own candidates for the P&Z, has influenced the two major parties to run forward-thinking candidates, proposed new ordinances in line with the goals of the Town Plan, and taken both pro and con positions on major land use and zoning proposals.
