Plan of Conservation & Development


The town is in the process of updating Southbury's Plan of Conservation & Development (POCD), which will serve as a guide for future growth and development in Southbury. The POCD was last updated in 2012. The State requires that municipalities update their POCDs every ten years to establish a vision and objectives that address housing, business and infrastructure development as well as parks, open space, historic and natural resources protection and sustainability, among other things. Residents, community members, businesses and organizations are encouraged to participate and share their opinions on this initiative.

Work on the plan was overseen by the town’s Planning Commission, municipal staff, and Cheshire-based consulting firm, SLR International.

Draft of the 2022 Plan of Conservation and Development

The Southbury Planning Commission has released a final draft of the municipality’s updated Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD) for a four-week review period.

Community input has been solicited throughout the updating process through a community survey in September-October 2021, an Open House in March 2022 and now a one month review period of this final draft prior to adoption, pursuant to state statute.

Residents, community members, businesses and organizations may view the plan and submit comments below until February 14, 2023.

The Planning Commission has scheduled a public hearing to adopt the updated Plan of Conservation and Development on February 21, 2023.
