Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan

Clinton is asking for comments on a draft Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan for the town. The plan lays out priorities for steps that the town and its residents could take to prevent or reduce damages from natural hazards.

People and property in Clinton are periodically exposed to hurricanes, tropical storms, winter storms, and nor'easters, sometimes in combination. In the last two years alone, residents of Clinton have suffered downed trees, prolonged power outages, impassable roads, and lack of services from Tropical Storm Irene, the Halloween Nor'easter, Hurricane Sandy, and the February blizzard earlier this year. Good planning can help us avoid severe damages in the future from natural events that we cannot control.

In addition, FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, requires towns to have an approved plan in place to be eligible for planning and mitigation grants.

The Lower Connecticut River Valley Council of Governments has helped the town draft a natural hazard mitigation plan, covering everything from drought to tornadoes. The plan is available for review at the town website,, the Town Clerk\s office, and the Henry Carter Hull Library. It will go to Town Meeting in the Spring of 2014. Until January 24, 2014, the town is seeking comments and suggestions though an on-line survey at If you cannot take it on line, either at home or at the library, please contact the Land Use Office, 860-669-6133, and we will provide you with a paper copy.

Welcome to Clinton, Connecticut
Clinton traces its history from 1663 when the land between Guilford and Saybrook, as they were then bounded, was known as Homonoscitt. In this year, a committee was appointed by the General Court at Hartford to lay out this area as a plantation. In 1667 the settlement was designated a town and named Kenilworth. By the middle of the eighteenth century, through changes in usage, this name became Killingworth. In 1838, the southern portion was incorporated by the General Assembly as the Town of Clinton, the northern portion retaining the name of Killingworth. The line marking the division between the towns of Killingworth and Clinton was the same as that which divided the first and second ecclesiastical societies, or, as they were later known, "school societies," which were established in 1735.
As in most small New England shore towns, life centered about fishing, farming, shipbuilding, and the church. One of the early leaders of Clinton's church was the Reverend Abraham Pierson. In 1701, when the General Court of the Colony in Hartford granted a charter for "the founding of a collegiate school within His Majesty's Colony of Connecticut", its founders chose the Reverend Mr. Pierson as its rector. The first classes were held in his parsonage in Clinton. In later years the school was moved to Saybrook and then to New Haven, where it eventually became Yale University.

With beautiful views of Long Island Sound, this gem of a town is approximately 100 miles from both New York and Boston and is easily accessible from New Haven, Middletown and New London.
A picturesque New England town, Clinton is a wonderful place to live and work. Clinton has an estimated population of 13,500 which almost doubles in size during the summer months as visitors flock here to enjoy our sunny beaches, antiquing, historic buildings and New England charm.
