To The Residents of New Canaan,

The Planning & Zoning Commission is pleased to present the 2003 Plan of Conservation & Development. The Plan sets forth principles, policies, and strategies to guide future conservation and development in New Canaan and recommends ways to implement the Plan. The Commission intends to periodically review and update this Plan in order to keep it current and tuned to the needs of the community.

Preparation of the Plan occurred over an 18-month period and included over 20 special meetings of the Commission and seven sessions specifically for public input and comment. The Plan reflects the work of the Commission, Town Staff, and the many residents who participated during the process.

The Commission is proud of this Plan and believes it will help maintain and improve the overall quality of life and maintain the unique character of New Canaan. We hope that you will join with us in implementing the Plan.


John Jex, Chairman
Planning & Zoning Commission
