The village of Devon is a neighborhood of the city of Milford, Connecticut, United States. It lies on the southwest corner of the city bordering Long Island Sound and the mouth of the Housatonic River. The village generally corresponds to the Third Voting District of Milford.

The village features an Audubon Center overlooking the estuary.

Municipal services

Since it lies within the municipality of Milford, all of its municipal services are provided by the city including police, schools, and other essential municipal services. Court services are provided by the Ansonia-Milford Judicial District.

Geography

Devon lies on the coast with a great amount of coastline, it also has a surprisingly high amount of inland freshwater swamps. The Charles E. Wheeler Wildlife Management Area is located in Devon.

Flooding

Due to the low elevation of Devon, the high concentration of structures and pavement along Route 1 and Naugatuck Avenue, Devon experiences flooding during heavy rainstorms on a regular and increasing basis. The flooding also occurs as a result of or coincides with raised waters from Beaver Brook, the Housatonic River, or Long Island Sound.[1]
