Town of Evans Planning Department

The role of planning in the Town of Evans has diversified to include issues related to long-term Comprehensive planning and zoning, as well as the day-to-day issues associated with growth and development. The Town has adopted a Comprehensive Plan, a Local Waterfront Revitalization Program and an Agricultural Protection Plan, and we are working toward the implementation of the recommendations contained in these documents.

With the support and leadership of Town administrators, we are continuously improving our ability to provide effective planning services to the Town's business community and its residents. The Planning Division is committed to assisting applicants through the development review process. Anyone wishing to submit an application is encouraged to contact the Planning Division to set-up a pre-application meeting. This meeting will help you identify what forms and other information is needed to complete an application.
