About the Board

The Planning Board is responsible for the preparation and adoption of the Master Plan, which is the guide for development of the community. It reviews and recommends adoption of all amendments to the Land Development Regulations. They also review all proposed subdivisions of land for compliance with Chapter XXXV, Section VII of the Land Development Regulations, which contains all standards for development of new streets, sewers, and utilities.

The Planning Board is charged under the Land Development Regulations with the responsibility to review all site plans, parking projects and major building projects for proper design and drainage according to standards.

The Planning Board has additional powers under the Land Use Law. It conducts hearings and may grant certain non-use type variances. There are time limits imposed that can grant certain approvals if the Board fails to act within the specified time:
