Planning has been a part of the Town of Bedford’s history since its inception in 1680 when the 22 men from Stamford, after acquiring the “Hopp Ground” set out to plan for a meeting house, a grist mill on the Mianus River and a burying ground — and agreed no house lot would be less than three acres but could be more.

Municipal planning is a deeply rooted American tradition and is of critical concern today in Bedford as the challenges of needed housing, prudent land use, and environmental protection are faced.

Bedford’s planning policies are implemented at three levels:

  • The Town Board approves the laws establishing planning policy.
  • The Planning Board assists in the formulation of and carrying out of policy.
  • The Zoning Board of Appeals which has the authority to grant variances from the Zoning Ordinance.
