Planning Board

The charter of the Planning Board is to review and guide proposed development projects so that they are in compliance with the regulations set forth in the Hillsdale Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Ordinance, 5/1/1995 (revised 6/20/2000 and further revised 6/18/2007). The principal goals of the Comprehensive Plan are to maintain the rural character of Hillsdale and protect our environment.

The Planning Board meets on the second Monday of each month at 7:00 PM in the Hillsdale Town Hall. Contact TBA, Planning Board Secretary, at  [email protected] if you need an appointment or wish to be added to the agenda. The agenda is typically set the week before the meeting, and minutes are available via the website two weeks following the meeting.
