Originally our planning board had five members. However, the Planning Board of the Village of Central Square has an important role in shaping the future development of the Village of Central Square. It was felt that by increasing the number of Planning Board members from five to seven would further assist and strengthen the planning process. So pursuant to Village Law 7-718, the membership of the Village of Central Square Planning Board was increased from five members to seven members in 2003. (Local Law #2-2003). Then in June 2010 by local law #2-2010 the Planning board was re-established as having five members with an alternate so that lack of quorum would not slow the ability of the board to conduct business.

The Mayor appoints the five member commission with the advice and consent of the trustees. One person is designated the chairperson or in some cases we have co-chairs. Planning Board Members review planning related issues such as rezoning, variance, special use, signs and subdivision requests. When required, they hold public hearings on those issues.
