Northfield Planning Commission

The Planning Commission is responsible for developing and drafting the Town Plan and Zoning Bylaws. The current Town Plan and Zoning Bylaws are available here:

Northfield Town Plan

Northfield Zoning Bylaws

The Planning Commission is in the process of updating the Town Plan and will subsequently review and update the Zoning Bylaws. We encourage members of the public to review the Town Plan and provide comments, which we will then consider as we prepare the update. Public comments on the Town Plan and the Zoning Bylaws are always welcome.

The current Planning Commission members are Paul Brown, Darlene Goodrich, Laura Hill-Eubanks (Chair), Aaron Rhodes (Vice-Chair), Ruth Ruttenberg, and Arlington Supplee.

To contact the Planning Commission members, please email them at or contact the Town Manager at 485-6121.

The Planning Commission meets on the 3rd Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room located in the Brown Public Library (93 South Main Street).  Please see the table below for future meeting dates and minutes of past meetings (when available).
