Public Meeting Scheduled for Town Plan

SIMSBURY – Simsbury is updating its Plan of Conservation and Development and, as part of that process, the Planning Commission has scheduled a public meeting to get input from Simsbury residents.  The workshop meeting is scheduled for:

Monday January 30, 2023

7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Henry James Middle School Cafeteria – 155 Firetown Road

The meeting will provide an opportunity for Simsbury residents to identify issues of concern to them and suggest priorities and strategies for the updated Plan.  The current Plan of Conservation and Development was adopted in 2017. 

Following the public meeting, the Planning Commission will review community input and then use that information to evaluate strategies to help guide the community in the future. 

A Plan of Conservation and Development is an advisory document used by the Planning Commission and other Town agencies to:

  • Promote the overall sustainability of the community
  • Protect the resources and assets important to residents
  • Guide growth and change in Simsbury
  • Identify facilities and services needed or wanted to support the community

Simsbury residents are encouraged to come to the meeting to help ensure that the Plan of Conservation and Development reflects community goals. “This Plan is an important document which will be used to guide future conservation and development activity over the next decade and beyond,” said Erin Leavitt-Smith, Chair of the Planning Commission.
