TPZC Adopts Windsor 2015 Plan of Conservation and Development
After a public hearing on Tuesday September 29, 2015, the Town Planning and Zoning Commission adopted its 2015 Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD). The Plan represents the culmination of years of work by the Town Planning and Zoning Commission, Town Staff, and residents. During the planning process, the Town Planning and Zoning Commission, Town Commissions, and residents participated in nine public meetings, workshops and hearings to develop and refine the Plan.
The POCD will guide Town boards, commissions, and residents over the next decade as they address:
· conservation issues including natural resource conservation, open space preservation, agricultural resource conservation and historic resource protection,
· development issues that impact residential neighborhoods, village centers and other industrial areas, and
· infrastructure issues, which address needed utility, transportation and community facility improvements.
To help ensure the success of the Plan, the Town has strived to involve as broad a cross-section of Windsor residents as possible in its development, for it is the residents that will ultimately implement the Plan through their direct action and their participation on, or appearance before, Town boards and commissions. All residents are encouraged to continue participating in the implimentation of this important document, which will help shape the Town over the next decade and beyond.
