Description | Meetings | Members


Under Section 16a-4a of the Connecticut General Statutes, the Office of Policy and Management (OPM) is responsible for the designation and redesignation of logical planning regions within the state. Accordingly, OPM has designated fourteen such planning regions . A map (PDF Format, 374 KB) showing these regions is available A list of municipalities (MS Excel)within each region along with individual town population based on the 2010 census.

Through local ordinance, the municipalities within each of these planning regions have voluntarily created one of the  three types of Regional Planning Organization allowed under Connecticut statute (a Regional Council of Elected Officials,  a Regional Council of Governments, or a Regional Planning Agency) to carry out a variety of regional planning and other activities on their behalf.
