Planning Board

Purpose

The Planning Board's main roles are to:

  • Regulate the subdivision of land
  • Create and update the Town's Master Plan
  • Review proposed amendments to the Zoning By Law
  • Review applications for certain kinds of Special Permits

The overall purpose of the Planning Board is to provide for and guide the orderly growth and development of the community. This is accomplished primarily through development of a Master Plan for the Town, the Zoning Bylaw, and the Planning Board's Rules and Regulations Governing Subdivision of Land. 

The purpose of these administrative duties is to ensure the public safety, interest and welfare of the residents of the Town within the Planning Board's functional areas as mandated by statutes and local bylaws and regulations. Additionally, the board has adopted a "Sidewalk Installation Policy" to ensure that pedestrian and bicycle needs are included in all development proposals.

In 2023, the Planning Board began work with a hired Planning Consultant, to update the Town's Zoning Bylaw by incorporating recommendations from the completed Master Plan 300 and by adding zoning in compliance with the MBTA Communities Act.  See below for more information on this process.
