Meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. If there are no applications to be heard, a meeting may not be scheduled.

All applications require an application fee and escrow fees when they are submitted. Applications must be submitted a minimum of 21 days before a scheduled meeting to be considered for that meeting.

Submission & Review Procedures:

The purpose of the Planning Board is to hear applications for Site Plans, Subdivisions and Site Plan Waivers.

You would apply to the Planning Board when you are opening a business and your site needs approval; in certain cases, a Site Plan Waiver application may be applicable. You would also apply to the Planning Board if you wanted to divide a property into multiple lots. It is best to call the office if you are unsure what type of application to fill out.
