Proposed Changes to Canton Zoning Regulations Available Online

Commission to begin reviewing document in February; public invited to comment.

The town has posted a copy of newly proposed Zoning regulations on its web site. 

On The town's land-use web page, under proposed zoning regulation re-write, those interested can read the draft copy of the proposed regulations as well as the appendix. 

An official copy of the zoning regulation rewrite draft was distributed to the Zoning Commission at Wednesday night's meeting. 

The commission plans to host workshops the first Wednesday of every month for their review as well as the public's.

The first meeting is Feb.  6, at 8 p.m. to discuss chapters 1-3. The commission will eventually hold a public hearing but welcomes input on the relevant chapters at each meeting, town planner Neil Pade said. 

Members of the public who can not make the meetings, can e-mail comments to npade@townofcantonct.org or send to

Thank god we live in a civilized society with all those regulations. I wouldn't know how to properly behave on my own property without them! If I didn't have someone telling me how big a house I had to live in, I might just live in a tiny little cottage on almost no land and pay almost nothing in taxes. Good thing all those zoning regulations are for taxes errrrr safety!

Updated regulations are a very good thing. This will help to fill vacancies in Canton, create jobs, and revenue.
