 Public Notice Registry
The Cheshire Planning and Zoning Commission has established a Public Notice registry pursuant to Public Act 06-80. Landowners and Electors of the Town of Cheshire as well as non-profit organizations may request to be placed on the Registry. Those placed on the Registry will receive advance notice by mail or email of Public Hearings associated with any proposed changes which are initiated by the Planning and Zoning Commission, to the Zoning or Subdivision Regulations, zoning designations or Plan of Conservation and Development. The Public Notice Registry does not apply to applications submitted by the public. If you would like to be added to the Public Notice registry, please submit a Request Form for Inclusion.
