The Planning and Zoning Commission is seeking input from the public on a draft Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD ) used to guide future development and conservation efforts in town.

Land Use Director Justin Giorlando will give a presentation Monday, March 13 at 7:15 in the community room at the library on the 76-page document that focuses on conservation, development and infrastructure strategies.

Residents must attend the meeting in person to comment but the meeting will be available for viewing using the following Zoom link with the meeting ID 89083260623 and passcode 993288. 

The town is required to update its POCD every decade, which means the current 2018 plan must be updated by 2028. Town officials said there will be subsequent meetings for the public to weigh in before the plan is finalized. 

The Planning and Zoning Commission produced the plan, which is broken down into four chapters with a focus on residential development, land use, community facilities, open space and protection of the town’s water quality.  

There are recommendations for zoning amendments and non-related zoning actions such as continuing “to publish maps with useful information about trails and access points for residents and visitors.”

A draft of the plan is displayed below with a download link and is posted on the town’s website
