The five Planning Board members are elected for five year terms and are not paid. The Board has two functions as defined by Massachusetts law: to establish planning goals and to prepare plans to implement those goals, which take the form of the town's zoning bylaws; and to administer the Subdivision Control Law which establishes the process for development of new roads and new housing. A developer's proposed plans are carefully scrutinized for roadway design, drainage, soil conditions and a host of details related to proper siting. Site plans for commercial projects are also reviewed by the Planning Board.
