About

The Planning & Zoning Commission meets the 4th Thursday of each month with the exception of August with additional special meeting and Public Hearings as needed. The purpose of the Commission is to provide standards and guidance for land use activities in the Town of Canaan (Falls Village) to help maintain and enhance community character and help protect the public health, safety and welfare. These standards strike a balance between what people want to be able to do on their own property and what people think their neighbors ought to be able to do on their property. 

**Please contact the Zoning Official to determine which permit applications are required for your project.
