Zoning Commission: Establish zoning districts and regulations; provide for the manner of enforcement of regulations; hear and decide on site plans, special exceptions or special permits for development.

Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Agency: Adopt wetlands/watercourse boundaries and regulations; hear and decide on applications for work involving regulated activities in wetlands or watercourses; hear and decide on petitions to change regulations or boundaries.

Aquifer Protection Agency: Adopt and implement regulations to protect Manchester's groundwater supply; inventory and register existing regulated facilities in Aquifer Protection Areas; hear and decide on applications for new regulated activities.
