Planning Department

Our History & Mission

The Planning Department provides professional planning and technical services regarding the town's land use, its environmental choices, its infrastructure, and its cultural and natural resources. The Department reviews all applications for development that require approvals from the Zoning Board and Planning Board. We also serve the Architectural Review Board, the Town Board and the Town Trustees. The Department’s staff members attend a number of Town committees, participate in the development of Town policies and regulations and work on a wide array of Town projects. We represent the Town in a number of East End and Suffolk County Planning efforts.
