Planning Department

The Planning Department supports multiple boards and committees: the Planning Board, Design Review Board, Historic District Commission, Historical Commission, Denton Road Neighborhood Conservation District Commission, and Fair Housing Committee. 

By analyzing economic, demographic, and development trends, the department helps develop long-range goals and objectives to shape the future of our community. 

Specific responsibilities include drafting recommendations for zoning amendments, providing support to residents and developers through the permitting process, working on Housing and Mobility issues, and overseeing design guidelines to help maintain the historical integrity and character of Wellesley.
