Woodmont is a borough of the city of Milford, in New Haven County, Connecticut. The population was 1,488 at the 2010 census.[2] It was first created by Special Act of Connecticut General Assembly in 1893 as the Woodmont Improvement Association.[3] In 1903 it became the Woodmont Association. [4] It became a municipality in 1957 when the Connecticut General Assembly passed House Bill No. 2443 "AN ACT TO CHANGE THE ASSOCIATION STATUS OF WOODMONT TO BOROUGH STATUS".

Woodmont is one of 9 Boroughs in Connecticut. The government of the borough works closely with the city of Milford to provide services such as road maintenance, snow plowing, street lighting, beach maintenance, and supplemental police service. There is an extra yearly tax assessment, beyond what is owed to the city of Milford, for borough residents to pay for services in excess of what the city of Milford provides to the rest of Milford.

Geography[edit]

According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough has a total area of 1.0 square mile (2.6 km2), of which 0.3 square miles (0.78 km2) is land and 0.7 square miles (1.8 km2), or 71.43%, is water.

A majority of the borough land mass is safely above sea level. However, it does have a few low elevation areas which are subject to flooding during very heavy storm situations (Hurricanes). The most recent, circa 2013 FEMA generated flood map is shown at the right, with the borough border roughly outlined in white.
