What does a Planning Board do?
A Planning Board reviews plans submitted by applicants who want to develop their land for residential, commercial, or industrial uses. Plans can be approved with conditions or restrictions that are incorporated into the Planning Board's decision. The Board guides the process of zoning amendments by holding public hearings and making recommendations to Town Meeting. The board is also responsible for the Master Plan and the implementation of some of its recommendations.
