The Planning Department is often the first point of contact for residents and non-residents with questions about planning and development. We play a major stewardship role for new development by providing professional planning and technical services to community stakeholders such as our residents, businesses and builders in the development process, land use ordinance regulation and providing accurate land use information in a positive and courteous manner.
The Planning Department staff provides the Planning Board and Zoning Board of Adjustment with development reviews and administrative support. Department personnel are also available to the public to explain specific applications.
The records of all applications pending before the Board are located in the Planning Department’s active files and may be viewed by the public during normal business hours, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. We are available and happy to assist you with any planning related questions over the phone at 973-535-7954, or by email.
