This board meets on the first Monday of each month, as needed, at the Fairfield Town Offices, unless otherwise posted, beginning at 7:00 PM. Meetings are open to the public.
The Planning Commission & Zoning Board of Adjustment are two separate municipal boards serving two separate functions. A Town can, and Fairfield has, elected to cause the members of its Planning Commission to serve also as the members of its Zoning Board. Therefore, although this group serves two distinct functions, it is in practice as one board. As Planning Commission they prepare a municipal plan, and amendments thereto, and to prepare zoning bylaws, and amendments thereto. As Zoning Board, they primarily hear appeals of zoning decisions and grant or deny variances.
