The Planning Board is an elected board. It is their charge to handle zoning. The Master Plan is looks at the town in the ultimate future and in five or ten years increments, that is the planning part of their job. They oversee the large commercial site plans, such as Solomon Pond Mall, Highland Commons and Riverbridge. They also control the subdivision control bylaws or ANR’s which means “Approval Not Required” as to frontage on a public road when people want to build along a public road. They work with the Building Inspector, the zoning enforcement officer who implements the zoning bylaw, and the Zoning Board of Appeals who handles the exceptions either through a special permit, variance or special appeals.
