Zoning Board

 

Zoning refers to the use of the public regulatory power to specify how land may be used and developed. The intent of zoning is to balance individual property right with the rights of the general public to a healthy, safe and orderly living environment. The primary role of a zoning board of adjustment/appeals is to review and decide case where there is an alleged error in a zoning decision or where a relaxation of the ordinance is sought. The zoning board meeting is held on the second Tuesday of each month at 5:30 pm. You can find the current agenda here.

Cemetery Committee

The Cemetery Committee was formed in 1997 with the purpose of locating and identifying the older burial plots in Oakwood Cemetery.  In addition to establishing a historically accurate plot, an additional purpose is to establish proper recordkeeping for future use. The final goal is to preserve these records and provide online access to the public for future generations.
