Organizations, businesses and congregations can put an orange sign out or replace a spotlight that might shine on your building with an orange bulb! During September, host a food drive! Be creative!! Share your efforts by snapping a photo and e-mailing a copy to email@example.com. Your photo will be shared with the Connecticut Food Bank. Your efforts will help Kent Food Bank earn food credits towards purchasing food items.
The Planning and Zoning Commission has been working on revisions to its current zoning regulations since the beginning of this year. The Commission recently received the first DRAFT of the rewrite and has decided to place it on the Town’s website for those interested in the process. New drafts will be placed on the Town’s website as they are received. The file is in PDF format and clearly marked DRAFT. It is still a product of the Town’s planning consultant and has not been approved by the Commission. Areas marked in red contain either new or revised wording.
The Commission is currently meeting on the 4th Thursday of each month to discuss this document. These meetings are not public hearings and the Commission is requesting that comments be held until the public hearing.
Once the Commission has approved the final version, a public hearing will be held to hear your comments. The Commission will decide at that meeting whether or not to accept the final document or make additional changes based on those comments.
Social Services will begin taking applications for taking applications for the CT Energy Assistance Program on September 2, 2014. A link to detailed description of the income and documentation requirements for this program are available on the town website under Social Services. Be aware that updated income guidelines for this year’s program have not been posted yet. Even if you completed an application for this program in the past, you must re-apply each year. For further information or to make an appointment, please call Leah Pullaro, Director Kent Social Services at 860-927-1586.

Kent, Connecticut 06757
Located in the scenic northwest corner
of Litchfield County, Kent was
incorporated in 1739 and has had
a history as a farming community and
thriving iron ore producer. It is now a
rural community of about 3,000 residents
with many small hamlets such as
Bulls Bridge, Flanders, Kent Hollow,
South Kent and the Cobble.
The town offers old-fashioned ways to
enjoy life such as hiking, biking, fishing,
and camping at State and local parks.
Kent is also the perfect destination for
those inclined to take a scenic drive!
Those of us who live in Kent often
comment how lucky we are to have
such a great place to call home.
