Planning Board & Department

Mission:

We are dedicated to making our town a better place to live — a place where people want to raise a family and have their children raise their children.  The Planning Board works to protect, and where possible, enhance our natural resources and preserve the quality of life for the citizens of Wayland.  We stand for a commitment to the long-term interests of our community and the following guiding values that make Wayland a special place to live:

  • Semi-Rural Character;
  • Public School Excellence;
  • Quality Public and Senior Services Excellence;
  • Protected Environmental Resources;
  • Strong Cultural and Recreational Resources.

Planning Board Charge:

The Planning Board is responsible for the review of land division as well as review of specific development proposals. The Planning Board’s duties are largely identified under Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 41, Section 81A, 81B, and subsequent sections. 

Agendas are available prior to the meetings. Minutes are available following approval.
