The Planning Board

The Planning Board is an appointed board charged with making recommendations to the Township Committee regarding the boundaries of Knowlton’s residential, business, and planned commercial zones and recommending appropriate regulations to be enforced therein. The Planning Board is responsible for reviewing all subdivision applications and larger development proposals requiring site plan review. Members participate in overall planning for the town and are involved in proposed changes to the Land Use and Subdivision Ordinances. They are advised by an attorney, the township engineer, and when needed, a city planner.

Knowlton’s Planning Board consists of 10 members, who are appointed by Knowlton’s mayor. Annually one Planning Board member is elected chairman and another as vice chairman.
