The Planning Board reviews and acts on the following:

Applications for subdivision approval. The Planning Board when reviewing subdivision and site plan applications can decide "C" Variances and establish procedures for the review of such applications.

Conditional use approval (if an application for conditional use involves a variance, the application is referred to the Zoning Board of Adjustment.)
