We will be limiting access to Town Hall except by appointment for those essential services that require face to face contact.  A lot of Town business can be done from a distance; we have drop boxes in front of Town Hall, as well as mail-in and on-line options. If business can be handled without an in-person visit to Town Hall buildings, we recommend that these alternative be utilized. We recognize that people need to plan ahead but safety is our primary concern.  for Staff Directory click here Staffing Directory   COVID-19 Numbers as of 1/7/2021 as it relates to the Town of Somers: Total number of residential cases 335, number of new cases 40.

Town of Somers Plan of Conservation and Development:

The function of the Planning & Zoning Department  is to offer advice on policy decisions, review and coordinate information for proposed physical development in Somers, and provide professional, technical, and administrative support to the Conservation, Planning, and Zoning Commissions, as well as to all other town Boards, Commissions, and staff.

The Planning & Zoning Department plays a key role in coordinating and administering the responsibilities of the town’s development and planning functions.  This multifaceted task involves the establishment and regulatory implementation of local land use goals and objectives, and the review of land use projects.  Prospective developers and landowners interested in development are encouraged to meet with Department staff to review applicable ordinances and regulations and the proper sequence for seeking development approval.  In this way, Planning & Zoning Staff may ensure quality development by balancing town goals and objectives with the rights of the individual property owners.
