Planning Boards are local review boards. They help towns navigate real estate law questions at the municipal level.
Some of the matters Planning Boards hear include:
- Subdivision proposals
- Planned business districts
- Commercial and industrial site plans
- Planned village developments
A planning board may also review and update zoning ordinances, subdivision regulations, and comprehensive plans. In some communities a planning board makes recommendations to the town council on proposed zoning ordinances and zoning map amendments.
