A Note From the Chair

The Planning Board of the Town of York welcomes you to its website. You will find a comprehensive array of Town Ordinances, Site Plan and Subdivision Regulations, The Town of York Comprehensive Plan and all current chapters of the Town’s Inventory and Analysis. There is an extensive selection of maps describing critical aspects of York’s natural resources, development patterns and growth trends. You also will find the Planning Board’s current Applications Review and Planning meeting schedules and accompanying agendas.


The Planning Board is comprised of five regular members and two alternate members, all who are residents of the Town of York appointed by the Selectboard. The Board’s principal responsibilities are the review of subdivision and site plan applications to assure compliance with the Town’s Land Use Ordinances, Subdivision and Site Plan Regulations and the Comprehensive Plan, and the continuing review and amendment of the Town Land Use Ordinances and Comprehensive Plan.

Planning Board members shall not engage in communication by mail or email regarding active applications with any party: other Planning Board members, applicant, property owner, developer, neighbor, opponent, supporter, interested citizen, etc., except at Planning Board meetings. In the event that inadvertent communication with Planning Board members regarding an active Application does occur, Planning Board members shall immediately forward such communication to the Planning Director for distribution to the Applicant and all Planning Board members, and it shall be made a part to the public record.
