Planning & Zoning Commission

On September 25, 2013, the Board of Selectmen approved an Ordinance entitled “Planning and Zoning Commission” which abolished the then-existing Planning Commission and Zoning Commission and created a combined Planning and Zoning Commission consisting of seven regular members and three alternate members.

The Planning and Zoning Commission holds monthly meetings to discuss and review subdivision, special permit, site plan and zoning amendment applications. The Planning and Zoning Commission also reviews and makes recommendations for municipal improvements such as streets, parks, playgrounds, schools, land acquisition, sewer and water extensions. It also prepares, adopts and amends the Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD). The Commission also reviews changes to zoning regulations and the zoning map in consideration of the POCD and determines the manner in which zoning regulations are enforced. The Commission also prepares and is required to update the Town POCD at least every ten years.
