Green Mountain Falls Planning & Land Use serves the community by providing technical guidance on all aspects of zoning, building, development, and preservation. Through public outreach events and monthly advisory committee meetings, the community determines how land will be developed or conserved.
Town staff is available to assist applicants through every step of the building and land use approval process. Staff encourages development that protects public health and safety while safeguarding the natural environment. This is done primarily by enforcing the laws codified in GMF Land Use Code §16, Zoning and §17, Subdivision.
GMF Planning & Land Use is also responsible for developing relevant policy and regulations, as directed by the Board of Trustees.
