Planning, Conservation & Development

City Hall is open to the public and staff is on-site to assist you. However, to restrict the potential of spread of COVID-19, we ask the following:

1) Call the office at 860-638-4840 for assistance.  We can handle most requests over the phone and by email!


2) If you need additional assistance, please call the office/staff person and schedule an appointment. Our office has limited space and capacity for constituents, so please call before coming to City Hall!

3) Walk-in's to City Hall must check in at the Lobby.  From there, if the office isn't helping another constituent, the department will be notified of your arrival and you will be able to come to the department for assistance.  If the department is assisting a constituent upon your arrival, you can schedule an appointment with the Lobby Clerk or call the office and schedule an appointment for a future time period.


Due to the epidemic all land-use meetings will be conducted electronically.  Click the link below to get more information about upcoming meetings.
