The purpose of the Planning Commission is to guide development with the existing and future needs of our community and to protect and preserve the integrity of the town while encouraging growth and development.

Planning Commission Meetings are held one per month (Please see link below for 2020 meeting schedule) to address specific zoning requests as well as future planning. Notices for all meetings are posted 24 hours in advance.  

The Board of Zoning Appeals is empowered to hear and decide appeals where it is alleged there is error in any order, requirement, decision, or determination made by the Zoning Administrator in the enforcement of this Ordinance.

The Board of Zoning Appeals may grant a variance only under exceptional circumstances, where practical difficulty or unnecessary hardship is so substantial, serious, and compelling that relaxation of the general restrictions should be granted.
