Planning Board

Welcome to the Woodstock Planning Board's Little Corner of the Web
The Woodstock Planning Board was empowered in 1960 to oversee subdivisions in the Town of Woodstock involving lots of less than 3 acres in size. The Planning Board's authority has expanded over the years to include:
  1. Review of all subdivisions
  2. Site Plan Review (SPR)
  3. Issuance of Special Use Permits (SUPs)
The Planning Board consists of seven appointed, unpaid members and meets on the first and third Thursdays of each month. Workshops are sometimes held on the fifth Thursday of months that have five Thursdays. Meetings and Workshops are held at 7:00 PM in the main room of the Town Office Building at 45 Comeau Drive, Woodstock. All meetings and workshops are open to the public. Agendas are posted on the Meetings Calendar which can be accessed from this website.
