Planning Board



In addition to current requirements, electronic copies of site plans/subdivision plans are to be sent to the Planning Board email address ( as part of the submission requirements; deadlines as posted apply.  In lieu of electronic receipt of plans, a waiver can be requested that includes an 11 x 17 copy of the plan being submitted.


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.
