Planning Commission

The Planning Commission is a guidance and advisory body, made up of five Town residents who are appointed by the Town Board for four (4) year terms. The Planning Commission will review, study and recommend approval or denial to the Town Board of Trustees on matters of planning and all applications dealing with zoning, rezoning, annexation and subdivisions, and will hear and recommend to the Town Board of Trustees on special and public use permits.  This commission is vital to the continued growth of our fair town!
