We are very pleased to be part of UConn's Connecticut Institute for Resilience & Climate Adaptation (CIRCA) Phase III Resilient Connecticut program. Focused on portions of South Norwalk, this plan will assess flood mitigation and heat adaptation options and opportunities.This plan will help the City to identify different levels and types of housing needed while providing guidance and direction on how to achieve those levels. The City needs to complete the plan to comply with the State requirements however the planning process will help the City fully understand what housing options are needed. Review projects recently approved, pending or currently underway throughout the city.

What We Do: 

Ø  Guide growth and development in the city.

Ø  Provide information, guidance and administrative support to the Zoning Board of Appeals, Planning & Zoning Commission, Historical Commission, and Harbor Management Commission.

Ø  Assist the land use Commissions in establishing the long-term vision for the city by implementing the goals outlined in the Plan of Conservation and Development.

Ø  Conduct planning studies related to traffic, parking, housing, urban design, mobility, resiliency, economic development, etc. as directed by the Commissions and/or the legislative body.
