BUCKFIELD — Residents on Tuesday passed a Planning Board ordinance that includes three major changes.

The changes call for:

• Reducing the number of members to five from seven.

• Reducing the length of terms to three years from five.

• Not requiring monthly meetings.

Five-year terms will be phased out as they expire, Town Manager Joe Roach said.

After a period of inactivity, the Planning Board has enough members to have a quorum and has met recently.
