A Plan of Conservation and Development is a long-range policy document that establishes the vision and goals for how the Town wants to grow over the next 10 years. The POCD is used to help guide and improve livability, economics, mobility, recreation, employment, housing, and resilience throughout the Town. Through this process, the community has informed the vision and goals for the future. The open house and presentation are opportunities for the public to submit final comments. Public comments are consulted when finalizing the plan.

Questions? You can reach us at or 860-647-3044. Please RSVP for the presentation using the email or phone number above.
