2018 Plan of Conservation & Development

August 1, 2017

Welcome to the 2018 Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD) page!

The POCD is a ten-year, state-mandated, planning document, meant to guide growth and development in our city. It also identifies strategies to protect important resources and attributes of Norwalk. The plan sets the table for many initiatives the city will undertake. 

Draft - Norwalk Citywide Plan 2019-2029 Plan of Conservation and Development

The City signed a contract with Stantec's Urban Places Group (http://www.stantec.com/our-work/sectors/community-development/urban-places.html) to conduct the study.  They began their work in August of 2017.

In addition to the POCD update, the City is conducting Redevelopment Plan updates to Wall Street, Washington Street and West Avenue, as well as a city-wide parking study.  In order to provide a singular message and outreach, we are currently contracting with a web development/public relations firm to coordinate outreach.  This will also ensure there is no duplication of message or meetings.  This site should be up and live in September 2017.   

This site will be added to over the next couple of weeks, so please check back often.   Over the course of the study this site will provide basic information such as meeting agendas, minutes and links to resources, while the combined planning site will provide the robust content.

Oversight Committee (PCOC)

The Planning Commission is tasked with overseeing and implementing the POCD.  Considering the importance of the POCD and the level of interest shown in updating this plan, an oversight committee (PCOC) was established to assist the Planning Commission in overseeing the plan update.  

The PCOC represents a diverse group of residents, leaders and staff who bring their history and perspective to the process.  A list of Committee members can be found here:
