The Newfield Planning Board was created by legislation adopted by the Town Board in 2007. Five volunteer Members, who must be residents of the Town, are appointed to the Planning Board by the Town Board for staggered, rotating five year terms. The first Newfield Comprehensive Plan was unanimously adopted by the Newfield Town Board on September 12, 2013. This seminal Plan was submitted to the Town Board after five years of hard work by the original members of the Planning Board and with extensive input from the Newfield community. The Plan is a living document, intended to be revised at regular intervals, providing a shared community vision and direction for the future of Newfield. The Newfield Planning Board is now charged with maintaining this document and guiding this vision toward reality under the direction of the Town Board.

The planning board meets on the first Wednesday of each month at the Town Hall at 7 p.m.
