The South Central Region: Plan of Conservation and Development 2018-2028 (Regional POCD) developed pursuant to Section 8-35a of the Connecticut General Statutes (CGS) is available through the link below.
The regional POCD is updated at least once every ten years per the requirements of the CGS 8-35a, and is a guidance document that sets policy priorities for the future of the region and its communities.
