Planning Board Member Wanted

The Planning Board, which has five members, has two vacancies and is looking for new members. The board typically meets the second Monday of every month at 7PM in the Town Hall but will also occasionally meet at other times as needed (due to social distancing restrictions, the board currently holds remote meetings on an as-needed basis only). The board’s responsibility is to enforce the town’s zoning bylaws and revise them as needed. A typical example is someone wishing to subdivide their property into two separate lots: The Planning Board would review the request to ensure the two properties meet the zoning requirements listed in the town’s bylaws for that location. Anyone interested in joining should contact either the Planning Board Chairman Lyle Snide, or the Town Administrator, Katherine Warden, at (413) 354-7760.
