The Attleboro Planning Board is composed of 9 volunteer members who are appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the Municipal Council. The Planning Board was established to administer subdivision regulations in accordance with local and state subdivision control law, administer site plan review, administer land development special permit applications including the City's 2 water resource protection overlay districts.
They also update the comprehensive plan, and make decisions and recommendations required by the zoning ordinance and the state zoning act in regard to zoning amendments and rezoning petitions. The Board typically meets on the first and third Monday nights of the month and occasionally on Tuesday nights for joint public hearings with the Municipal Council. The best way to reach the Board members is through the Department of Planning and Development.
