About Us

The Planning Department is responsible for guiding the conservation and development of the town. By reviewing proposed developments, designing town projects, providing information on public and private developments, and administering the town's Geographic Information System (GIS) for mapping, information retrieval, and analysis, we provide guidance and support to the Historic District Commission, the Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Commission, and the Town Planning and Zoning Commission.

 

Whether you are expanding or relocating your business, developing a new residential neighborhood, or feel that you will be impacted by a proposed development, we are here to help you navigate the planning and zoning process. Even if you are just thinking of developing a project in town, come see us first and we can set up a confidential meeting with our Staff Development Team to help you better understand what will be required of you under the various planning, zoning, building, fire, engineering, and health codes so that you can make more informed decisions about your project.

 

We have designed this web page to be a clearinghouse for planning and zoning information, where you can get contact information; maps; regulations; application forms; procedures; agendas, legal notices, and minutes; demographic data; answers to many of your questions; and much more with a few clicks of your mouse. If you cannot find what you need, let us know and we will see if we can add it to this site in the future.

Did You Know?

Commercial property owners provide approximately 40¢ of every tax dollar collected, yet require very little in services when you consider that the school budget comprises approximately 70 percent all of municipal spending.  Even with tax abatemewnts on real property such as land and buildings, for new economic development projects, taxes on personal property such as computers, vehicles, and conveyor systems can still add significant taxes to the town's Grand List.  The Walgreens distribution center is Windsor's largest taxpayer based on personal property alone.
