Planning & Zoning

Coronavirus COVID-19 Update:


Dear Planning and Zoning Customers,

Town Hall is now closed to the public and staff until April 22, 2020. Planning and Zoning (P&Z) staff is diligently working to ensure we keep business running as smoothly as we can during this period so that you also can keep things moving. To that end, please note the following:

Building Permit Questions: If you have questions regarding a building permit, please contact the Building Department directly with these questions for the fastest response. 

Planning and Zoning Meetings: The March 24th meeting is cancelled. We are working on an enterprise Zoom system with the prospect of potentially holding the April 7th hearing, but this is still very tentative. Please check back here for updates. Applications are still being accepted. See below, "Application submissions".

Counter hours: A “virtual” counter will be staffed daily from 8AM to 4PM, which are extended hours. Initial contact with staff should be established via email using this link. From there, you can work with staff to show them plans, setup phone calls, etc. Staff will gladly work with you to answer any other questions regarding a property and will generally be able to email you documentation, aerial screenshots, etc.

Application submissions: Applications are still being accepted for all application types. To submit an Architectural Review Committee (ARC) application, please e-mail Marisa Anastasio, Senior Planner at Marisa.Anastasio@greenwichct.org.

To submit any other application type, please contact both Katie DeLuca, Director of Planning and Zoning at Katie.DeLuca@greenwichct.org AND Peter Mangs, Applications Coordinator at pmangs@greenwichct.org. Applications, checklists, and other information can be found on this website.

Although we are accepting digital submissions, you will be required to send in a paper copy of your application with a check to the following address. The mail will be retrieved once a week. You can expect your check to be cashed shortly thereafter.

Greenwich, CT 06830

Application timelines: The following is a general summary of the orders pertaining to land use that are set forth in Governor Lamont’s Executive Order No. 7l, which supplement previous orders regarding suspension of in-person meeting requirements. See Executive Order No. 7B. For more details, please reference the provisions of the Order itself.

  1. Deadlines that may pass or expire during the public health crisis declared by Governor Lamont on March 10, 2020 may be extended by 90 days. This applies to: a) the commencement or completion of a public hearing; b) the rendering of any board or commission decision required to made within a particular time period; and c) the submission or reporting to any State agency or quasi-public agency. This 90-day extension is in addition to the extensions already allowed by statute. For example, a decision that has a 65-day total extension period now has a 155-day total extension period.

Lastly: We are open to suggestions on how to improve this system to better serve our applicant’s and the public. Please freely connect with us and share your thoughts.


Sincerely,

Katie DeLuca, Director
