The Planning Commission is responsible for addressing policy matters related to general land use and development in Town. Sitting as the Board of Adjustment, the Commission reviews applications for variances, and appeals from decisions made by town officials administering zoning and subdivision ordinances. Its decisions may be appealed to the Town Council.

The Planning Commission meets 1st and 3rd Wednesdays at 7:00 pm in the Historic Schoolhouse with occasional field meetings.
