In Ripton, these three boards are served by the same members. Alternates replace absent members if required to maintain a quorum.


General: The planning commission provides land use planning for the town. The zoning board of adjustment (ZBA) rules on applications for variances from the zoning bylaw and on conditional use applications; it also hears appeals of decisions by the zoning administrator. The historic district commission provides guidance on external changes to properties in the historic district.
Membership: Appointed by the selectboard for a 3 year term.
Meeting schedule: The planning commission meets the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm at the town office. The ZBA and Historic District Commission meet at the same time as needed. All meetings are open to the public.
Agenda and Minutes: Meeting agenda and minutes are available at the town office or from the commission chair.
