  • Welcome to the Eastford Conservation & Historic Preservation Commission (CHPC)

    Eastford Connecticut is our home. We love our town for many reasons - its fields, forests and rural character; its small-town atmosphere and friendly people, its history and its charm.
     

    Eastford is changing, and like all small towns, will continue to change. As Eastford grows, the Conservation and Historic Preservation Commission (CHPC) is working to ensure that our natural and historic resources are conserved and that as we build what needs to be built, we celebrate our history and environment by protecting our resources for future generations.

    Eastford has its own open space fund, and there are also state and federal grant funds available for protecting open space. If you love your land and would like to see some or all of it protected from development for future generations, we would like to hear from you.

    Good jobs, a strong economy and a stable mill rate are critical to Eastford's future. So are a clean environment and our small town, rural character. If we all pitch in - working and planning together - we can ensure that generations to come will also enjoy these assets.

    The Commission consists of nine members and in the web pages on Conservation & Historic Preservation, you can review our mission statement. In addition you can review or download Natural Resource Maps including Agricultural Soils, Ground and Surface Water Resources and several others. Additionally, links to local and state organizations supporting open space and other conservation initiatives can be found.
