I. Statutory Powers and Duties
II. Master Planning
The Town of Lebanon established a Planning and Zoning Commission in 1962. The Town has chosen to combine their Planning Commission and Zoning Commission, rather than have separate Commissions as is now permitted by State Statute. Federal and State enabling legislation is based on a municipality first PLANNING, through the creation of a Master or Comprehensive Plan, and second ZONING, according to said Plan.
In Connecticut, the Master Plan is referred to as the Plan of Conservation and Development. State Statute requires each this plan to be updated at least every ten (10) years by the Planning Commission. The Plan of Conservation and Development is available for sale in the Town Clerk's Office.
III. Zoning and Subdivision Regulations
The PZC holds regular meetings the third Monday of each month. Special meetings may be scheduled when deemed necessary. Meetings are held in the Town Hall at 7 pm and are open to the public. Check the calendar for specific meeting dates and times.
In 2015, Lebanon was awarded COMMUNITY OF THE YEAR by the CT Chapter of the American Planning Association “in recognition of its on-going efforts to preserve its agricultural-based economy and town character”.
