Planning Commission

The Town of Elizabeth’s Planning Commission serves as a legally mandated group who acts in an advisory capacity for the Town’s Board of Trustees.  In the event there is insufficient interest to maintain a fully functioning Planning Commission, the role reverts to the Town Board of Trustees.  The Planning commission addresses issues directly related to planning and zoning, land use regulation, building and housing codes, and community development.  Their role is limited to land use within the Town of Elizabeth, and do not work in attracting business to the community or in long-term planning and development of the Town as a municipality or as an organization. Regular meetings of the Planning Commission are held the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 P.M. in the Town Hall Board Room, located at 151 South Banner Street, Elizabeth.
