For substantial improvements (This includes sheds, additions, swimming pools, garages, etc.) an approved Zoning Compliance Certificate must be obtained before construction is started. Please contact the building official if in doubt.
Zoning Compliance Certificates are obtained by attending a Planning & Zoning Commission Meeting, held the first and third Wednesday of each month at the Town Hall. Applicants will be required to complete a “Zoning Permit Application”

TOWN OF UNION CONNECTICUT
Union was the last town to be settled east of the Connecticut River, largely because of its rough terrain and poor soil. In 1633, John Oldham, an adventurer from Massachusetts, obtained specimens of black lead or graphite from the Indians. During the Revolutionary War Governor Trumbull tapped this valuable resource for use at cannon foundries. On July 1, 1720 the General Assembly sold 12,500 acres to 12 proprietors for 307 pounds, comprising the area that is now Union.
