What is the Zoning Commission? According to the Danbury Zoning Commission website, this is its definition.


This Commission consists of nine elected regular members and three alternates. They review applications for zone changes, amendments to the zoning regulations and special permits for location approvals for liquor permits or for the storage, sale and repair of construction equipment. They also advise the Zoning Board of Appeals on “use variance”.
