Historical Note

In the summer of 1933, President Roosevelt created the National Planning Board, later to become the National Resources Board. That same year, Governor Wilbur L. Cross appointed a Connecticut State Planning Board. The Board coordinated and integrated information pertaining to growth and development of the State. They collected information, data and maps from across departmental lines and made the information available to all. There were several projects initiated by the Board relating to water quality, forests, highways, population demographics and zoning. An aerial map of the State was considered “the most essential single step for our state-wide data.” [Connecticut State Planning Board, Statement #9, April 4, 1934. CSL call number: ConnDoc P693 st] In 1935, the General Assembly passed legislation officially creating the State Planning Board, which superseded the so-called Governor’s Board created under executive authority.
