The planning board has three roles, or spheres of activity:
- The planning role, in which the board establishes a vision for the future of its community and identifies the steps necessary to achieve that vision;
- The legislative role, in which the board proposes ordinances and enacts regulations — the rules by which to achieve the vision; and
- The regulatory role, in which the board applies the ordinances and rules to specific situations in fulfillment of the vision.
In Plainfield, the Town Administrator plays an active role in assisting applicants throught the subdivision and siteplan review processes. Most questions related to the planning process can be answered by contacting the Town office.
