Planning Board

Authorized by NYS General Municipal Law, Section 239-b, and County Law, Section 220, the Wayne County Board of Supervisors adopted Resolution 25, in February 1966, authorizing “the establishing of a County Planning Board with initial and succeeding members of said Board to be appointed by the Board of Supervisors’ Planning and Development Committee.” 

Under current practice, appointments are made by the Board of Supervisors, with one representative from each of the 15 towns of Wayne County. The Board of Supervisors confirmed the appointment of a fifteen member Board under a system of three year staggered terms.
