Planning & Zoning Commission

In its planning role, the Commission is charged with prepare and adopting the town's long range land use plan (called a Plan of Conservation and Development).  As the town's zoning authority, the Commission is responsible for adopting, amending and enforcing zoning regulations that implement the Plan of Conservation and Development.
