Planning Commission

The Planning Commission is responsible for drafting updates and other amendments to the Charlotte Land Use Regulations (zoning bylaws), which govern what can be built, where in town, and with what restrictions.  They are also responsible for preparing periodic updates to the Town Plan, and for coordinating planning projects related to transportation, housing, infrastructure and conservation. Members are appointed by the Selectboard.

The Commission generally meets the first and third Thursdays of each month at 7 p.m. at Town Hall. Please refer to our Meeting Calendar for the current Meeting Schedule. Meeting agendas and materials from past meetings may be reviewed from links below and to the left. Older meeting minutes may be found on our Dropbox account, by year.  Audio recordings from past meetings can also be found on our Dropbox account. (Please note: for best results, download the audio file to your device from Dropbox. Online version is limited to first hour of recording.)
