Mission Statement

The Planning Board studies the resources and needs of the Town, particularly conditions affecting public welfare and safety related to land use and development. The Board uses the Master Plan and related processes to plan and make recommendations for the development of the Town, with special attention to the proper housing of Town residents. The Board has total responsibility for all Subdivisions, for the administration of the Subdivision Regulations, and for Special Permits required by the Fairhaven Zoning Bylaw.

The Board also has the primary responsibility for the writing of Zoning Bylaws, reviewing amendments to the Zoning Map, which appear in the Warrant for any Town Meeting, and to present its recommendations to the Town for consideration at such Town Meeting.
