Regional Planning Overview

The South Central Regional Council of Governments (SCRCOG) is committed to addressing a diversity of projects and providing technical assistance to its member municipalities. The land use activities/projects within the region are focused on sustainability and include, but are not limited to, zoning, housing, and data collection (U.S. Census, GIS). Projects are either mandated by the State of Connecticut General Statutes or recommended by the SCRCOG Board and the Regional Planning Commission.

SCRCOG’s land use responsibilities revolve around advisory recommendations for statutory referrals and the preparation of the Regional Plan of Conservation and Development.  Additional land use projects undertaken by the region include Affordable Housing, Regional Recreational Trails, and Regional Hazard Mitigation Planning.
