Christopher Assenheimer, Board Clerk
The Planning Board can be summarized as the board of "permitted activities." The Planning Board's essential duties are to deal with policy (the master plan) and the implementation of that policy through the zoning, site plan and subdivision ordinances.
These ordinances establish a series of ground rules to be met by an applicant. If the applicant meets the requirements of the particular ordinance, the board must approve the subject application unless a specific requirement of that ordinance is not satisfactorily fulfilled by an applicant.
The governing body, by ordinance, created a planning board of nine members. The membership consists of the four following classes:
