Weston 2020 Town Plan of Conservation and Development

What is a POCD?

The Town of Weston Planning and Zoning Commission (PZC), with assistance from the planning consulting firm of Milone & MacBroom, Inc. (MMI), is preparing an update to the Town's Plan of Conservation and Development, or POCD. The POCD is intended to provide a long-term vision for the Town and help guide decision making relating to growth, development, and conservation over the next ten years. The State of Connecticut requires municipalities to update their POCD every ten years. 
As a comprehensive plan, the POCD will look at a range of topics that will influence Weston over the coming decade, including demographics, housing, land use, community facilities, infrastructure, economic development, open space, recreation, transportation and sustainability. While it is important to understand data and trends, it is equally important to understand the priorities of the community.

The POCD Process

The PZC will review updated information on demographic, housing, land use, economic and other trends to understand existing conditions. Coupled with this data analysis, input from the community through a community survey and workshops will enable the PZC to identify Weston's challenges, opportunities and priorities in order to craft a community vision for the next ten years. The PZC will formulate objectives and strategies that advance this vision through a participatory and iterative process that includes ample opportunities for the public to weigh in through workshops and planning exercises. The PZC will then oversee the development of the draft POCD which will be forwarded to the Board of Selectmen and the regional council of governments for their review and comment prior to adoption.
The planning process is anticipated to occur in 2019. We want the community to get involved in the planning process in order to set a clear vision and supported objectives for the POCD. Several opportunities for engagement will occur throughout the planning process.
