Beginning on August 1, 2017, submittals of Site Plans and Subdivisions for review of the Planning Board must be accompanied by a checklist indicating that the submittal is complete and will meet all of the requirements outlined in the Regulations.  Submittals not accompanied by the properly completed checklist will not be accepted.


Since adoption of the Kingston Zoning Ordinance in the 1960's, the citizens who serve on the Planning Board have administered the duly adopted land use regulations that voters have decided best protect their vision for Kingston's future. At times those ordinances and regulations are protective in nature; at times they have added to the aesthetic or historic nature of Kingston. Always, they reflect the wishes of the voters. The Planning Board also develops and maintains the town's Master Plan and Capital Improvements Plan.

In 1996, voters made Planning Board membership an elected office. Residents who have an interest in helping to form the vision of Kingston's future should attend some of the meetings and hearings of the Board to determine if membership might be an option for them.

Current Ordinances are on line (see the listing of documents to the left) and the Planning Board's Administrative Assistant is available during her regular office hours to assist with any questions.
