Helpful Application Hints and Resources

sCHEDULE a Development Services Team (DST) Meeting

Applicants are encouraged to meet with the Development Services Team (DST), which is an informal pre-application meeting with representatives from various Town Departments, including Aquifer Protection, Building, Economic Development, Fire Marshal, Health, Inland Wetlands, Planning, Public Works, Sewer, and Zoning.

• Property and business owners (both existing and prospective), engineers, contractors, attorneys, realtors, architects, and other land use and development professionals can present and discuss any proposed construction project, new business, or business relocation or expansion project and get feedback and questions answered from all of the above listed Town Departments about state and local land use codes, ordinances, and regulations; permitting requirements; and the application process.

• To request a meeting with the DST please contact the Mayor's Office at 860-355-6010 or request a meeting under the Economic Development section of  the Town of New Milford's online permitting system.


Avoid unnecessary delays by submitting complete applications. Applications are scheduled on a first come first serve basis. Incomplete application will not be scheduled until a complete application form with all required information is received. If you have questions we are here to help:

Many residents and property owners are fearful of construction activities and change in their neighborhoods especially when they feel uninformed or have misinformation. To avoid having this fear turn into opposition, we encourage applicants to talk to their neighbors before applications are filed. Early involvement and communication often result in a smoother application process for all parties.
