Planning Board


The five-person Planning Board was established by local law by the Village Board of Trustees pursuant to Section 7-718 of the Village Law.  Members are appointed for a term of five years.  The New York State Legislature gives the Village the authority to appoint alternate members, pursuant to Chapter 137 of the Session Laws of 1998, to substitute when regular Board members are absent or unable to participate in local land use matters or applications due to conflict-of-interest situations.


The Planning Board has all of the following powers and duties:


  • Review any application for amendment of Chapter 160 of the Pulaski Municipal Code entitled Zoning.


  • Review any application for variances and submit a recommendation to the Zoning Board of Appeals.


  • Conduct public hearings on all special use permit requests and make a determination based on the evidentiary record, finding whether the applicable standards for special uses have been met and deciding what, if any, conditions it believes should be imposed.


  •  Consider, prepare and make recommendations to the Village Board on the adoption or amendment of the Comprehensive Plan for the present and future development or redevelopment of the Village.
