Planning Commission and Board of Adjustment 


The Planning Commission (PC) consists of seven members appointed by the Board of Trustees. The Planning Commission meets once a month to make recommendations on land use applications and land use related ordinances based on State and Local laws, zoning and municipal codes, before they are heard by the Board of Trustees. For more information about the Planning Commission, please email Planning.

The Board of Adjustment (BOA) is a volunteer Board of five members appointed by the Board of Trustees, including one representative from the Board and one representative from the Planning Commission. The Board of Adjustment meets on an "as needed" basis to hear and rule on variances to the Town's Zoning Regulations.
