The general function of the Planning Board is to collect, research, document, and update available data related to the Town and Village of Sandy Creek; formulate policy and make recommendations to the constituent municipalities; serve as a source of information for the citizens and local governments; promote the concept of home rule, while working cooperatively with other local, state, and federal agencies; and work for the health, welfare, and general well-being of the community.
