Planning & Zoning Draft Regulations

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.

STEAP Grants Funds for Repair of Covered Bridge at Bulls Bridge

The Town of Kent applied for and received a 2013 Small Town Economic Assistance Program (STEAP) grant for $100,000 from the State of Connecticut to fund repairs to the covered bridge at Bulls Bridge.  It is planned to use the grant funds to replace the existing deteriorated roofing materials with new composite materials. The roofing materials were last replaced in 1994. The design for the proposed repairs have been reviewed by the State Historic Preservation Office.

Design of the proposed improvements is completed and the Town plans to advertise the project for construction bids in the late summer of 2014.

Anyone interested in obtaining further information or providing input may do so by contacting Bruce K. Adams, First Selectman, at 860-927-4627 or Public comments on the proposed improvements are to be submitted by August 29th.



Planning & Zoning Commission Special Meeting at 07:00 PM


41 Kent Green Boulevard
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.
