Regional Plan of Conservation and Development

Regional Plan of Conservation and Development

The Regional Plan of Conservation and Development (RPOCD) is a visionary land use plan intended to identify and address issues of regional concern; making recommendations for cooperative, voluntary action.  The RPOCD is intended to be used by the Lower Connecticut River Valley Council of Governments (RiverCOG), the Region’s land use commissions, municipal governments, and state agencies. The primary use of the document is to inform land use decisions made by municipal commissions, and to encourage land use coordination across municipal boundaries. The priorities identified in the municipal POCDs guided the creation of the RPOCD. The RPOCD is written to address local issues from a regional perspective. Municipalities should find recommendations and goals in the RPOCD that support their own POCDs. Nevertheless, the RPOCD is non-binding on municipalities.
