Change of Zoning
22.3 Form of petition.
All applications, appeals or petitions shall be on a form supplied by the Planning Commission, Zoning Commission, or the Board of Zoning Appeals and shall be submitted and receipted in accordance with the provisions of the Connecticut General Statutes.

22.6 Notice to be posted on premises.
For applications or petitions filed with the Planning and Zoning office, which require publication of notice thereon and which relate to a specific parcel(s) or building (s), the Planning and Zoning office shall post conspicuously on the premises on which action is pending so that it may be easily seen and read, a printed placard at least 11 inches by 14 inches in size, on white or yellow card stock, in black ink as follows: "ZONING Use Change" in two lines of 72-point type, "Requested Here" in one line of 60-point type, followed by, in writing in black grease crayon, the location, time and place of the public hearing to be held thereon. Such placard shall be posted on such premises at least five days preceding such hearing. Any person mutilating, tearing down, removing or obstructing the view of such placard shall be found guilty of a misdemeanor punishable under the provisions of Section 17 of these Regulations. This penalty clause shall be printed in 12-point type on the placard. This posting requirement shall not generally apply to petitions for proposed amendments to the zoning regulations, proposed amendments to the subdivision regulations or proposed amendments to the plan of development unless such petitions address an isolated area or property where the administration of these posting requirements would be practical.

22.7 Pending changes.
Whenever there shall be pending before the Zoning Commission any proposal for a change of zone or alteration of an existing district boundary, the Building Inspector shall not issue any building permit for the construction or substantial alteration of any building or buildings, upon any lot likely to be affected by the final determination of such motion for a change of zone or variance of an existing district boundary, as the case may be, pending the public hearing and final decision by the Commission upon such motions. The clerk of the Zoning Commission shall immediately give notice in writing to the Building Inspector of the pendency of such motion and of the final decision thereon.
