Planning and Zoning

The Planning and Zoning Division’s work is focused on the Town of Bennett’s motto: “Building on the past... preparing for the future.” We support and promote development and redevelopment that enhances the community’s quality of life and assures a sustainable future. We strive to protect the public’s health, safety and welfare, while accommodating the rights of private property owners.
