The Town Begins Process of Updating the Plan of Conservation & Development

"The Town Begins Process of Updating the Plan of Conservation and Development”

 

Plan Your Future! The Town of North Branford Planning and Zoning Commission, with assistance from the planning consulting firm of Milone & MacBroom, Inc., is preparing an update to the Town’s Plan of Conservation and Development, or POCD. The POCD is a guidance document that will provide a long-term vision for the Town and guide decision making relating to growth, development, and conservation over the next ten years. The State of Connecticut requires municipalities to update their POCD every ten years. The current document is set to expire in November 2019.

 

As a comprehensive plan, the POCD will look at a range of topics that will influence the Town over the coming decade, including demographics, housing, land use, community facilities, infrastructure, economic development, open space, recreation, transportation, and sustainability. While it is important to understand data and trends, it is equally important to understand the priorities of the community.

 

The Town of North Branford has launched an online Community Survey to gather input from residents, businesses, workers, and property owners. The survey asks questions about housing, quality of life, economic development, town services, amenities, and other topics of importance in town. Please take the Community Survey by visiting: www.NBPOCDSurvey.com.Additional community workshops will be held in early 2019.

A project page will soon be established on the Town website. Draft materials as well as announcements of future public events will be posted on the website.
