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 ).  The PC also participates in the regional planning process, undertakes comprehensive planning, and functions solely as a planning body.  The PC does not review development proposals or issue permits; these fall under the jurisdiction of the Development Review Board, and the Zoning Administrator.  Unless otherwise announced, regular Commission meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month, 6 p.m. currently remotely due to COVID-19. Interested citizens are always encouraged to attend.
