Plan of Conservation and Development

 

What is a Plan of Conservation and Development?

The Plan of Conservation and Development, also referred to as the “Plan” or the “POCD”, is a document that lays out a vision for the community. It contain a series of goals and policies for the Town and defines a framework for how we would like to see the town grow over the next 10 years and beyond.

The Hebron Planning and Zoning Commission has undertaken the process of updating the Town’s 2014 Plan of Conservation and Development.  The current 2014 Plan was approved on June 10, 2014 and it can be viewed by clicking on the link below.

We are Updating our Plan!

The Town of Hebron Planning and Zoning Commission has been working with former Town Planner and consultant Michael K. O’Leary to prepare an update of the 2014 Plan of Conservation and Development. Please use the following link to a page containing a final draft of all five (5) sections of the 2024 POCD.

What’s in the Plan?

The Plan contains information on how the Town has developed over the past decades and how it is expected to grow in the future. It contains goals and policies regarding the natural resources in our town, such as wetlands, watercourses, aquifers, soils, farmland and open spaces, and identifies ways to protect them.  The Plan also contains goals and policies for the business areas of the town and provides guidance for how we want the business district to develop. The Plan contains guidance for other items such as housing policies, town facilities and other important issues.  These goals and policies are the basis for many of the Town’s land use regulations. The Plan also contains a number of maps showing planned open space, natural features, historic sites, the business districts in town, and a land use map.

Why is the Plan being Updated?

Every Town is required by State law to have a Plan, and to review and update it at least every 10 years. It is increasingly necessary to have an updated Plan to apply for State grants; but, it is even more important for a Town to keep its Plan current and have a “big-picture” document of how we want to grow.
