About

A Plan of Conservation and Development is a document whose purpose is to establish a common vision for the future of a community and then determine policies that will help attain that vision. While its key purpose and function is to address the physical development of a community, it will often address issues related to the economic development and social development.

The goals and recommendations of the Plan are intended to reflect an overall consensus of what is considered desirable for Canaan / Falls Village and its residents in the future.

A Plan of Conservation and Development becomes an official document after a public hearing and adoption by the Canaan / Falls Village Planning and Zoning Commission. Once adopted, the Plan is used to:
 ~  promote sustainability initiatives,
 ~ organize conservation activities,
 ~ guide land use decisions and regulations,
 ~ coordinate public projects, and
 ~ guide how to meet identified public needs.

However, it is important to note that the Plan of Conservation and Development is primarily an advisory document. It is intended to guide local boards, commissions, and officials and to provide a framework for consistent decision-making with regard to conservation and development activities in Canaan / Falls Village over the next decade or so.

While the statutory responsibility to adopt the Plan rests with the Planning and Zoning Commission, implementation will only occur with the diligent efforts of the residents and boards, commissions, and officials of the Town of Canaan /Falls Village. The Plan will only be effective if it is understood and supported by the people of Canaan / Falls Village, and implemented by local boards and commissions.

Canaan / Falls Village has prepared Plans of Conservation and Development before and it is intended that this update of the 2013 POCD will continue the tradition of evaluating ways to best address the appropriate conservation and development of Canaan / Falls Village.
