Planning Board

The primary role of the Planning Board is to advise the Board of Commissioners on planning, zoning, and development issues within the town and its extraterritorial jurisdiction.  The board sponsors planning studies, recommends policies, coordinates public participation, and reviews zoning amendments and development plans to determine consistency with the comprehensive plan and any other relevant plans.
