Tolland Village Area
The Planning and Zoning Commission for several years has been examining what has come to be known as the “Tolland Village Area”, located adjacent to the Exit 68 interchange. The Commission recognized that, due to the prime location, development will likely occur here and that current zoning might not result in development that reflects Tolland’s character. The Commission began undertaking studies and holding public meetings to form a vision for a town center. During a 2009 telephone survey, two-thirds (64%) of Tolland residents expressed support for the concept of creating a “community focal point, similar to a village-type ‘town center,’ in a walking friendly setting with community gathering spots and shops” in Tolland. The PZC with consultants, Planimetrics of Avon and input from the public has developed regulations and guidelines to guide the community to achieve the vision.
