To provide timely, professional, customer-oriented administration of the Town's land use and planning laws and to coordinate long-range planning services for the community.
The Town of Salem's Planning Division consists of Planning Director Ross Moldoff and Administrative Secretary Lisa Wojtas. Our primary responsibility is administering the Town's land use controls, including subdivision and site plan regulations. This involves extensive dealings with the public, reviewing plans and proposals, signing permits, inspecting sites, and working with other Town staff, consultants, and applicants. We arrange Planning Board and Conservation Commission meetings throughout the year, and serve as staff to these citizen volunteers. Given Salem's population and development activity, the volume of this administrative work takes up most of our available time.
Our other major responsibility is long-range planning for the community. This involves updating and implementing the Town's Master Plan, proposing new regulations to control land development, preparing planning studies and working on a variety of miscellaneous projects for the betterment of the Town.
