Plan of Conservation and Development

The Draft 2020-2030 Western Connecticut Regional Plan of Conservation and Development comment period period is now closed. Thank you to everyone who contributed through comments. All comments received and staff responses can be found here: Comments and responses (.pdf).

WestCOG will hold a public hearing at 12:30PM on January 16, 2020 at the Ridgefield Visiting Nurse Association, 27 Governor Street, Ridgefield, CT 06877, during the regular monthly COG meeting. All interested parties may attend the public hearing and provide comments regarding the potential adoption of the 2020-2030 Western Connecticut Plan of Conservation and Development.

The Western Connecticut Plan of Conservation and Development is being prepared in compliance with Section 8-35a of the Connecticut General Statutes.  The plan must show “its recommendations for the general use of the area” including land use, housing, transportation, public utilities and “other matters as, in the opinion of the council, will be beneficial to the area.” This Plan replaces previous regional plans issued by HVCEO (1971, 1981, 1997 and 2009) and those of SWRPA (1974, 1983 and 2006).
