Town of Simsbury-Workforce Housing Overlay Zone

Simsbury Town Seal_black

Adopted by the Simbury Zoning Commission in April of 2013 as one tool to create “workforce” (affordable) housing, this regulation uses many of the components of the Incentive Housing Zone legislation that was passed by the Connecticut Legislature, but does not fully meet the criteria for the process requirements and density limitations contained in the legislation. The regulation does include specific density requirements which the Town feels provides significant incentives to create attractive, yet affordable housing units. It also contains graphic illustrations to show specific types of acceptable development for each of the six (6) subzones allowed under the regulation.
