Strategically located midway between New York City and Boston, Central Connecticut is a socioeconomically diverse region of nearly one-quarter million persons with a variety of landscapes and a rich history in manufacturing, education, health care, and media.
The Central Connecticut Regional Planning Agency (CCRPA) is the regional and metropolitan planning organization for the cities of Bristol and New Britain and the towns of Berlin, Burlington, Plainville, Plymouth, and Southington. For over 45 years, CCRPA has worked with government, business, and the public to develop a vision for the region and resolve its challenges. The Agency's mission is to plan and promote regional policies and programs to enhance the vitality, accessibility, and quality of life in our communities.
An engaged public is key to planning. We employ a variety of engagement strategies, including in-person, mail, and online surveys; focus groups; stakeholder committees; and secondary research. In addition to these formal techniques, we are open to and actively seek public input in all stages of the planning process. If you have questions, comments, or would like to help out, we want to hear from you! Here are a couple ways you can get involved:
If you'd like to come to a meeting but can't, or would like to discuss a planning issue that's not being met on, we want to hear from you. Just e-mail, fax, or phone us your comments before the meeting or, if you're interested in a specific project, feel free to get in touch with the project manager. We can also meet in person if you make an appointment.
