Natural Resource Inventory

The Natural Resource Inventory (NRI), mandated by the State of Connecticut, indexes a municipality’s committed and uncommitted open space, water resource areas, natural and cultural areas designated for preservation, as well as potential wildlife corridors.

An NRI must be completed every 10 years. Branford completed the most recent NRI in 2013.

Plan of Conservation & Development

The Plan of Conservation & Development (POCD) is a state-mandated document prepared and adopted by a municipality to establish a common vision for the future of a community. The POCD then is used to guide policies that will help attain that vision. 

Each municipality must prepare or amend, and then adopt, a POCD at least every 10 years. The Commission makes recommendations for conservation activities that are included in our POCD. Branford’s most recent POCD was adopted January 17, 2019.
