Roxbury, CT Public Notice Registry
Effective October 1, 2006, the Connecticut State Legislature required that all Planning and Zoning Commissions establish a “public notice registry” (Public Act 06-80). This registry is to be used to inform interested landowners, electors, and nonprofit organizations of the following actions initiated by the Planning or Zoning Commission:
· Amendments to the zoning regulations;
· Changes to zoning district boundaries;
· Changes to subdivision regulations; and
· Revisions to the Town Plan of Conservation and Development.
Persons and organizations who ask to be placed on the registry will be notified by either regular mail or electronic mail of the commencement of public hearings on the above-listed Commission-initiated activities. The Commission will send the notices at least seven (7) days prior to the beginning of the public hearing. These notices are in addition to the legal notices published in the local newspaper.
Please note that the new notices will cover ONLY those activities initiated by the Roxbury Zoning and Planning Commissions. The Commissions will NOT send notices regarding applications submitted by others. The Zoning Regulations govern which types of applications require notices to be mailed by the applicant to abutting property owners. If, for example, an applicant submits a request for a zoning amendment, the Zoning Commission will NOT send notices of the public hearing to those on the public notice registry. On the other hand, if the Zoning Commission itself proposes a zoning amendment, the Commission will send a notice to everyone on the public notice registry.
Your name will be kept on the registry for a period of three years from the date of your request. At the end of the three years, if you want to continue to be on the registry, you will need to request 3-year extensions.
Actions of the Roxbury Inland Wetlands Agency, Conservation Commission and the Zoning Board of Appeals are NOT covered by these new notice requirements.
If you want to be placed on the public notice registry, please submit your request to:
