About the Board

The Planning Board serves as an advisory committee to the Town Board of Commissioners. Responsibilities include review and recommendation on zoning change requests, preliminary subdivision plans, and code text amendments as a typical matter of review. The Planning Board also reviews and makes recommendations to the Town Board of Commissioners on modifications to existing long-range plans and other planning documents related to the growth and development of the Town. As part of the recommendation-making process, the Planning Board also considers recommendations from the Planning Department Staff.
