Plan Of Conservation and Development
Introduction to the Plan
The Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD or the Plan) is the City’s guide for managing growth and conserving resources. The City’s Planning Commission is responsible for updating the Plan every ten years as mandated by the State. The Plan addresses multiple issues related to stewardship of the City and provides a foundation for City policy, capital investment, and its zoning regulations. Danbury last undertook this process ten years ago culminating in the 2013 POCD. This effort will provide an updated Plan that will address important issues related to Danbury’s growth and will provide a vision for its future.
