Who We Are


The Town Planning and Zoning Commission (TPZC) is an appointed commission charged with the long-range planning, conservation, and development of the Town.  Through its Plan of Conservation and Development, (POCD) the TPZC sets future policy for the conservation and orderly development of the Town over the next decade and beyond.  Through its Subdivision Regulations and Zoning Regulations, the TPZC implements the POCD by regulating the residential and commercial development of Town.


The TPZC is supported by the Planning Department and the Staff Development Team: a multi-disciplinary team of Town officials charged with comprehensively reviewing all development proposals and applications pending before the Commission.

Widespread use of LED lighting has the greatest potential impact on energy savings in the United States. By 2027, widespread use of LEDs could save about 350 TerraWatt hours of electricity: which is equivalent to the annual annual output of 44 1,000 megawatts power plants, and save more than $30 billion at today's electricity prices.
