A Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) was established by a vote of a Town Meeting on May 14, 1960.  The original Planning Commission ordinance was published May 16, 1960 and was effective May 31, 1960.  The ordinance creating the Planning and Zoning Commission and the Zoning Board of Appeals superseded this ordinance, renaming The Planning Commission to 'The Planning and Zoning Commission of the Town of Hampton, and was approved on April 29, 1971, published May 4, 1971, and became effective May 19, 1971.  As authorized by State Statute, the Planning and Zoning Commission adopts and enforces zoning regulations as authorized by Section 8-2 of Chapter 124 of the Connecticut General Statutes;  prepares, adopts, and amends the plan of conservation and development for the Town of Hampton pursuant to Section 8-23 of Chapter 126 of the Connecticut General Statutes; and adopts and enforces regulations for the subdivision and resubdivision of land pursuant to Sections 8-25 and 8-26 of Chapter 126 of the Connecticut General Statutes. 
 
The Commission shall consist of five (5) members who shall be Electors in the Town of Hampton, holding no salaried municipal office, with all the powers and duties specified in Chapters 124 and 126 of the General Statutes of Connecticut, as amended.  The First Selectman shall also be a member of said Commission but without voting privileges.  There shall also be three (3) alternate members.  No member or alternate member of the Zoning Board of Appeals may be a member or alternate member of the P&Z Commission.  At each biennial election of the Town there shall be elected to the P&Z one (1) member who shall hold office for five (5) years beginning on the date of his/her election and one (1) member who shall hold office for five (5) years from the first anniversary of his/her election.  There shall be a minority representation on this Commission as provided in Section 9-167a of the Connecticut General Statutes.  Alternate members of the Commission shall be appointed for five (5) year terms by the Board of Selectmen.  
 
The Commission is authorized to adopt by-laws and such other procedures as it may deem necessary for the efficient management of its business.  Copies of any such by-laws and/or rules shall be filed by the Town Clerk and placed on record before they shall be effective.  As authorized by state statute and the Town of Hampton's ordinance for said Commission, the Commission has the power to adopt and enforce zoning regulations as authorized by Section 8-2 of Chapter 124 of the Connecticut General Statutes, to prepare, adopt, and amend the plan of conservation and development of the Town of Hampton pursuant to Section 8-23 of Chapter 126 of the Connecticut General Statutes, and to adopt and enforce regulations for the subdivision and resubdivision of land pursuant to Sections 8-25 and 8-26 of Chapter 126 of the Connecticut General Statutes.  The Commission shall also have those powers and duties now or hereafter conferred upon P&Z Commissions by statutes of the State of Connecticut. No member of this Commission may personally appear, or represent any person, firm or corporation or other entity in any matter pending, before the P&Z Commission or the Zoning Board of Appeals.
