The Division of Planning administers the permit processing which requires approval from the Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals, and/or Town Board. Long term, this Division maintains the Town Comprehensive Plan, periodically updating demographics and development trends. Planning studies, such as the current Local Waterfront Revitalization Study, provide information to the Town Board that allows this Division to update or amend the Comprehensive Plan. This Division also manages and updates the Town Geographic Information System (GIS), used by departments throughout the Town.
