Planning Board

The Village Planning Board is appointed by the Trustees of the Village to guide development in the Village. The Planning Board regulates the height, bulk and location of buildings and open spaces. They also regulate the location of commercial structures and the uses for those commercial structures.

The goal of the Planning Board is to secure, promote and maintain public welfare.  The Board strives to ensures that new developments maintain adequate light and access, and that they preserve the character of the Village and its districts.  The Planning Board meets once each month and meetings are open to the public.  Click the link below for the 2022 Planning Board meeting schedule.
