The Planning Board studies the resources, possibilities, and needs of the community and makes plans for the future development of Weymouth. This includes amendments to the Town’s Zoning Ordinance as well as a comprehensive Master Plan for the community which sets forth in graphic and textual form policies to guide future growth and development.
The Planning Board has the power to regulate the subdivision of land within the Town by the adoption of local rules and regulations. It further functions as the Town’s capital planning body, surveying the physical conditions and adequacy of all public buildings, facilities, and equipment. The Planning Board prepares and annually revises a five-year capital outlay program, known as the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP), based on the relative need, the timing, the estimated cost, and the proposed method of financing for each capital expenditure proposed.
The Planning Board consists of five members of the community appointed by the Mayor.
