New Action Plan for Conservation & Development Released for Comment
How can we attract and retain young people and families to our town? How can we further improve upon the high quality of life we offer to residents of all ages? How do we balance our need to conserve land, protect water quality, and maintain the rural character of our region while also meeting our needs for housing and jobs? The new draft Regional Plan of Conservation and Development lays out a strategic list of actions that we can take as a town, together with our regional partners, to address these challenges over the next ten years. To see a copy of the Plan visit northwesthillscog.org/regional-plan-conservation-development. A public hearing to solicit input on the draft Plan will be held on September 19th, 2017. Thanks to all our residents who took the resident input survey which informed this Plan.
To Commission, Board, Committee and Agency chairs
and/or representatives and other interested parties in the Town of Cornwall.
Due to conflicting events, the Cornwall Planning & Zoning Commission will be conducting a Forum in late October to start the process that will lead to Cornwall's next Town Plan of Conservation and Development. It will be held at CCS with a set date and time to be announced soon.
We hope to draw in a large showing of groups and citizens of Cornwall.
All are welcome!
As the date approaches, details and support information is available on the Cornwall web site (under Planning & Zoning minutes and agendas) as well as updates in the Cornwall Chronicle or by request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On behalf of the Planning & Zoning Commission,
Karen Griswold Nelson, Land Use administrator

A very short history of Cornwall
Cornwall, in Litchfield County, is located on the Housatonic River in northwestern Connecticut and contains a portion of Mohawk State Forest. The town was incorporated in May of 1740 which means that the town was celebrating the 275th anniversary in 2015. The early economy was based on farming, but iron furnaces, including two blast furnaces, gained importance in the nineteenth century, along with the supporting charcoal making industries. Famous as the site of the Cornwall’s Foreign Mission School and the Cream Hill Agricultural School, Cornwall has also been called the “Home of the Covered Bridge,” in reference to the 1864 West Cornwall Covered Bridge that is still in service today. One of Connecticut’s smallest towns, Cornwall has remained a rural community. (From the ConnecticutHistory.org website )
