Community Development


Town Hall offices are working in a virtual manner and remain closed to the public for an indefinite period of time. To facilitate the delivery of services to residents, property owners and business owners, we encourage all Community Development related inquiries for service to be conducted via phone at 860-561-7500.

Please be advised that processing and response times may be longer than normal. Thank you for your patience.


The mission of the Community Development Department is to ensure the quality of private development in the community and build and preserve the Town’s infrastructure.  The Department includes multiple divisions that provide a broad range of technical expertise and support to advance residential and commercial projects from design to construction.  It also provides administrative support to several land-use boards and commissions and serves as the link between the Town and its residents by providing public information through the use of a variety of communication tools.  The Department is also responsible for designing and constructing the Town’s streets, sidewalks and bridges.

The Department is organized into the following divisions. Under each section you will find a staff directory and detailed information on services, applications, fees and permits.
