Planning Board meetings are generally held on the fourth Thursday of each month. However, dates may vary due to holiday schedules. Planning Board meetings are also publicized on the second page of the Rockland Section of the Journal News.
All Planning Board meetings are open to the public and generally begin at 7:30pm. Residents are invited to attend. If there is a public hearing on the agenda, residents can address the board on the topic which is the subject of the public hearing.
Unless the anticipated size of the audience is expected to be larger than normal, the Planning Board meetings are held at Village Hall. If the anticipated size of the audience is expected to be too large to hold the meeting at Village Hall, an alternative location will be designated. Check with Village Hall for any changes in meeting location.
