Keeping Up With the Pace of Change:  New Approaches to Land Use Regulatory Systems


Michael Piscitelli, AICP, New Haven Deputy Economic Development Administrator
Deanna Rhodes, AICP, Norwich Planning & Neighborhood Services Director
Patrice Carson, AICP, Consulting Planner
Chris Smith, Esq., Shipman & Goodwin


With 169 municipalities of various size and makeup, each with multiple land use boards/commissions, land use regulation in Connecticut is locally-driven and integral to responsible growth and development. What have we learned, however, about process improvement and efficiency in recent years? Are we adapting well to new technologies and digital platforms? What is working in one municipality that might make sense elsewhere?

This workshop will focus on Connecticut’s land use permitting process as we explore ways to:
(a) use innovation and technology to improve and make more predictable the permitting process;
(b) build in more meaningful input from regional agencies or councils of government; and
(c) brainstorm possible improvements such as a unified land use permitting process throughout the State.

The panel speakers will guide the discussion through intensive problem-solving discussions in a roundtable format.  At the end of the workshop, we will generate a list of potential “deliverables” that both the Bar Association and CCAPA may work on, perhaps together, going forward.
