Planning Commission Meetings

Event Calendar

The Planning Commission vs the Zoning Board of Adjustment.

Under Vermont state law the Planning Commission and the Zoning Board are two separate municipal boards serving two separate functions.

The Planning Commission is a municipal panel that is principally responsible for drafting the Town Plan and the Town’s land use Bylaws.

The Zoning Board of Adjustment is a municipal panel that performs a quasijudicial permitting function (acts like a court) and hears appeals from actions or decisions of the Zoning Administrator. It also considers conditional use applications, decides requests for variances, and rules on variance requests.
