The Planning & Zoning office is located on 2nd floor of the Town Hall, first door on the left.

The Planning & Zoning Department is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the Village and Town Zoning Regulations, ongoing land use planning efforts, grant preparation and administration and maintenance of this web site.  The Planner/Administrative Officer works with the Planning Commission in developing the Town Plan and the Village/Town Regulations which must be re-adopted every eight years.  The department also is the administrative and technical support for the Design Review Boards, Development Review Boards and Conservation Commission.

The department is staffed by Neal Leitner, Planner/Administrative Officer and Lynn Beach,  Administrative Assistant.
