The Planning Board receives its powers through the Municipal Land Use Law which allows this Board to hear applications for subdivisions and site plans only. Any subdivision or site plan application heard by this board involves only permitted use of the land in question as defined by the Master Plan. Generally, the Board has no jurisdiction or power to deny an application that fully complies with the zoning ordinance. However, a site or subdivision plan can be denied if it does not fulfill a specific requirement of an ordinance.

The Board application process includes reviews by the Board Planner and Board Engineer. In addition, recommendations are received from the Environmental Commission and Shade Tree Commission. The Board may also request recommendations from the Board of Fire Commissioners, Department of Traffic & Safety, or any other agency deemed necessary.

The Engineering department performs engineering inspections during the construction phase of the project. The Engineering department also manages performance and maintenance guarantees for approved projects, as well as certificate of occupancy recommendations upon completion of construction.
