OPM: 2018-2023 POCD Update

Connecticut Conservation and Development Policies Plan 2018-2023 (State C&D Plan)
Sections 16a-25 through 16a-30 of the Connecticut General Statutes establish a process by which the Office of Policy and Management (OPM) shall revise the State C&D Plan once every five years.  Each 5-year revision to the State C&D Plan is prepared with consultation from regional councils of governments, municipalities, state agencies, and the public.  In summer 2016, OPM began the State C&D Plan revision process for the 2018-2023 State C&D Plan, which must be submitted to the General Assembly by December 31, 2017.  Check this web page periodically for information and updates concerning the 2018-2023 State C&D Plan revision.
