Most development, other than construction or addition to a single family home, will require some type of Planning Board review.
The need for Planning Board review is determined by the Code Enforcement Officer, often when a building permit is requested. If Planning Board review is required, the applicant should contact the Town Planner and schedule a meeting to discuss preparation of the development application. The Planning Board conducts the following types of review:
- Subdivision Review
- Site Plan Review
- Resource Protection Permit
- Private Access Review
- Earth Materials Permit Review
The authority of the Planning Board to review development proposals is derived from the Subdivision Ordinance and the Zoning Ordinance. The Planning Board also reviews and comments on Zoning Ordinance Amendments and Subdivision Ordinance Amendments before the Town Council considers adoption.
