The Middlefield Planning & Zoning Commission is responsible for reviewing and acting on land use applications for municipal, commercial and residential development. The Commission will hear and consider proposed amendments to the Zoning Regulations or Zoning Map. The Commission proactively undertakes proposed changes to the Zoning Regulations to keep with development trends or Statute changes. It will consider changes to the Zoning Map to provide greater consistency with the Town’s Plan of Conservation & Development (POCD). The Commission is responsible for the updating of the Town’s Plan and Conservation and Development every 10 years.
