In its Planning capacity, the Commission prepares the Comprehensive Town Plan (the zoning map) and the Plan of Conservation and Development, and updates the plan every 10 years. The Commission also approves subdivisions of land to create building lots.

In its Zoning capacity, the Commission is responsible for the review and approval of site plans for the construction of commercial and office buildings, for the development of recreational facilities, and for the construction of municipal and institutional facilities.

In 2002, following two years of community input and plan preparation, the Planning and Zoning Commission adopted the Branchville Village Plan as an addendum to the Plan of Conservation and Development, to recommend desirable land use strategies, address possible transportation improvements, and suggest alternative strategies.
