Planning Board

The Planning Commission, an elected board of five members, is responsible for the physical, environmental, and economic planning of the Town with all the powers and duties of a planning board established under provision of general law.

The Planning Commission would like all residents to be aware that the Commission is available to assist them in understanding the intricacies of zoning law and land use regulations, and that all are welcome to attend the public meetings held monthly. Notice of these meetings are posted in the Town Clerk's office and on the bulletin board outside of the Treasurer's office.
