Planning Commission

The Planning Commission has broad authority to plan for the future needs of the community, which may include but limited to drafting and maintaining a current municipal plan and identifying tools, regulatory and non regulatory to implement the plan. The Planning Commission solicits public input, weighs options an make policy decisions, some of which will chart the future of the community and which may eventually have the force and effect of law.   The Commission must take care to represent all members and interests of the public officials, interest groups, civic groups and citizens.

The Planning Commission meets the first Tuesday of the Month at 7:00 pm, at the Town Hall, as needed. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend. Members serve rotating three year appointments with renewals after Annual Town Meeting. 

Members: Philip Bannister (2025), Robin Ekstrom (Clerk) (2024), Andrew Morrison (Vice-Chair) (2026), Susan Coakley (Chair) (2025), Vanessa Vadim (2025)
