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.

The process is overseen by the Southbury Planning Commission, the staff of Planning Department and Cheshire-based consultant SLR International Corporation (formerly Milone and MacBroom, Inc.).

Community Survey

The Southbury Planning Commission seeks input from every resident and business owner to contribute to the Town's Plan of Conservation and Development update. The questions address quality of life, recreation, land use, economic development and other topics. Your responses will help establish shared values and priorities for the Town's future, and will guide the planning process. All answers are confidential. The survey can be accessed directly at The deadline to submit responses has been extended to October 27, 2021.
