The Town of Haddam is updating its Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD). This is where you will find information about the update process, including upcoming events and how you and your neighbors can be involved and help shape the future of Haddam.
The POCD communicates a shared vision for Haddam’s future and is a roadmap that guides how the Town can build on its assets and overcome barriers to reach that vision. The POCD is a tool used by Town staff as well as local boards and committees to make decisions about:
What new development looks like and where it happens,
How the Town can protect environmentally sensitive areas as well as important historic buildings and landmarks,
What future investments in community services are priorities, and
How the Town can support business development.
Its most important goal is to protect and enhance the things in Haddam that make it a great place to live, both for today’s residents and the future generations.
Over the course of the next year the Town will be soliciting residents for their input on the POCD at several public events. We expect to be meeting with the public and drafting the POCD from the fall of 2016 until adoption in late fall of 2017.
