Plan of Conservation & Development Update Committee





The Town of Canton 2013-2023 Plan of Conservation and Development



The Town of Canton is seeking members of the community to assist in the update to the 2003 Plan of Conservation and Development.  The Plan of Conservation and Development (Plan) is required by State statute to be updated every 10 years.  The update to the current Plan must be completed no later than September 2013.


The Plan is an important public document that defines the Town of Canton, its unique characteristics, the identity and interests of its citizens, and is representative of the community as a whole.  Any changes to the Plan may have long lasting effects on such characteristics, identity, interests, and the general welfare and prosperity of the community as a whole.  The Plan is a long term guide to assist the community in managing potential changes during the time it is in effect (from 2013 to 2023).


On September 15, 2010 the Board of Selectmen (BOS) passed a RESOLUTION CONCERNING THE CREATION OF A TEMPORARY PLAN OF CONSERVATION AND DEVELOPMENT UPDATE COMMITTEE for the purpose of reviewing and updating the 2003 Plan. 


The Update Committee will consist of members of various Town boards, agencies, community groups and will include three (3) community members at large to ensure that the voice and sentiments of the citizens of Canton are included.


If you have any questions regarding the Plan, Update Committee, or the process of reviewing and updating the Plan, please contact Neil S. Pade AICP, Director Planning and Community Development at 860-693-7891,


If you would like to be considered for this committee please fill out a volunteer application form (below) and submit it to Michelle Schroder, Executive Assistant to the Chief Administrative Officer by October 18, 2010 at 860-693-7841,
