The Planning Board is a seven-member board. Each member is appointed for a seven-year term, provided they haven’t been appointed to fill a vacancy resulting from a resignation, at which time they will be appointed to fulfill the remaining balance of that term for which they were appointed. The duty of the Board is to act upon lot line changes, site plans, and special use permits and sign structures as well as the planning, growth and development of the community. The Board also reviews and approves or disapproves subdivisions.


The Town Board appoints all the members listed on the municipal boards. Each member is appointed, with their duties on the respective board established by New York State, Sullivan County and Town Laws. Each member sitting on the boards and committees are to act in the best interest of the Town and the residents they are serving. They are expected to render their decisions on any matters before them without political and resident pressure. Board meetings are open to the public as provided for under the New York State Open Meeting Law. Public attendance is encouraged and welcomed.
