The City of Torrington Planning and Zoning Commission performs two unique and separate duties - Planning and Zoning.

The Planning Function consists of preparing plans for the development of the City that identify appropriate land uses including residential, commercial, industrial and specialized purposes. It also includes recommending locations for thoroughfares, parks and other public improvements.   It also acts as an arm of the State for the approval of automobile establishment locations.

The Zoning Function regulates use and development of land, including height and setback limits for construction, minimum building lot size, and parking space, sign and landscape requirements.  The staff actively performs inspections for zoning permits issued, enforces the zoning regulations by issuing violations as necessary, issues zoning certificates of compliance and checks compliance when approving certificates of occupancy.
