The Planning Board reviews proposals seeking to: (1) subdivide land, or (2) develop or use land for non-residential purposes. This is accomplished thru local regulatory authority enabled in state law. Public hearings are conducted by the Planning Board on each application. The Board strives to balance its public duty with applicants’ property rights and the interests of those that are impacted by development. When all conditions imposed by the Planning Board are met, a project is then allowed to proceed to construction.
