In 2017, the Town Board voted to limit the number of Town Board members permanently appointed to the Planning Commission to allow for greater citizen involvement in this important process. The commission is now made up of seven members of the public including one Town Board member who serves as a voting liaison.

In 2019, Resolution 2019-0010 was passed by the Kersey Board of Trustees adopting a meeting start time of 6:00 pm for all regular Town Board meetings. The Town board extended to the Kersey Planning Commission to also begin their meetings at 6:00 pm. The Planning Commission accepted the new meeting time and now meets the first Tuesday of each month at 6:00 pm unless otherwise posted. 

In 2023, the Town Board voted to reduce the number of members to six members of the public including one Town Board member who serves as a voting liaison.
