The Kenmore Planning Board was established to provide site plan review and approval on various permit applications.  In addition, the Planning Board developed the Village Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan provides general information as to the appearance and needs, both now and in the future, for the Village Business Districts.

The Planning Board members are appointed to 5 year terms by the Mayor, with approval by the Board of Trustees. Planning Board members must be Village of Kenmore residents and/or business owners within the Village. Alternates are appointed annually.

The Planning Board typically reviews Sign Permit applications, Site Plans, Façade and Use changes.

The Planning board meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 6:00 PM. Meetings are held in the Council Chambers of the Kenmore Municipal Building.  It is strongly recommended that all applicants be present to review their application with the Planning Board.

Minutes are available on line.  If you are interested in Minutes which have not yet posted, please contact the Clerk/Treasurer’s Office at (716) 873-5700.
