to the Borough of Stonington

The Borough of Stonington was chartered in 1801 by a special act of the legislature of the State of Connecticut. It is the oldest Borough in Connecticut.

The Borough Charter click-here sets forth the basic structure of Borough government, describing  the powers and duties of the elected officials. The governing body is the Board of Warden & Burgesses, which has the power to make ordinances and prepares the budget for approval at the Annual Borough Meeting in the third week of April.

The Board of Warden & Burgesses also appoints members of the Planning & Zoning Commission and the Zoning Board of Appeals. The Harbor Management Commission is a joint agency of the Town and the Borough.

The Borough seal reflects the exploits of Stonington resident Nathaniel Brown Palmer, who while hunting seals in the Southern Ocean in 1820, became the first American to sight the Antarctic continent, a peninsula now known as Palmer Land.
