Planning Commission

The Planning Commission (PC) is comprised of 5 volunteer members, who are appointed by the Select Board, and are principally responsible for drafting and amending the Bolton Town Plan and our town’s land use bylaws; The Bolton Land Use and Development Regulations (BLUDR).  The PC also participates in the regional planning process, undertakes comprehensive planning, and functions solely as a planning body with no authority over development review projects.  The PC does not review development proposals or issue permits; these fall under the jurisdiction of the Development Review Board and the Zoning Administrator.  Meetings are held monthly and interested citizens are always encouraged to attend.
