Fowler Planning Board

The Planning Board consists of five Fowler residents. We regretfully accepted the resignation of James “Art” Besaw, from the board due to his moving out of the Town of Fowler. Art has served on the planning board for many years, and his knowledge and experience will be greatly missed.
