Threats: Deterioration, Zoning
Threats Details: 

The West Haven Green has seen an erosion of its historic streetscape until today it is primarily comprised of 20th century commercial buildings or residential structures that have been converted to commercial use. Nothing can be done about the loss. However, financial incentives, zoning regulations and design guidelines should be established that would enhance the importance of the green as a visual and historic focal point of the town.
