In order to prevent the spread of Coronavirus and protect the health and safety of our members and staff, as of March 18, 2020, the Connecticut Siting Council has converted to full remote operations until further notice. Please be advised that during this time period, all hard copy filing requirements will be waived in lieu of an electronic filing. However, the Council respectfully requests that one hard copy of any filing be mailed to the Council Office for our records. The Council’s website is not equipped with an on-line filing fee receipt service. Therefore, filing fees and/or direct cost charges associated with matters received electronically during the above-mentioned time period will be directly invoiced at a later date.

Please be advised that pursuant to Governor Lamont’s Executive Order No. 7DDD, all statutory and regulatory administrative time requirements and deadlines under the Uniform Administrative Procedure Act, the Public Utility Environmental Standards Act and the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies, including, but not limited to, final decision deadlines and any other time limitations for applications, petitions, Development & Management Plans, requests for tower sharing and requests for exempt modifications shall be extended for a period not to exceed 90 days.

In July, the Council was required to migrate to a new website format. Many of the existing links from the original website were rendered inactive. The Council has no control over the website migration. Thank you for your patience as these issues are resolved.
