I received a “Notice of Public Hearing.” What does this mean?

State statutes and local regulations require that abutters be given notice whenever certain development projects require permits. You are being given legal notice in accordance with applicable regulations. The notice will indicate the location and general scope of the proposed development and the time of the Public Hearing where the general public may comment on the proposal. You may also review the proposed development plans at the Planning Board office.

The Planning Board generally meets every other Monday evening at 6:45 p.m. on the second floor of Town Hall at 550 Hanover Street. Meetings are posted at the Town Clerk’s Office. All Planning Board meetings are open to the public and the public is welcomed and encouraged to attend these meetings. These meetings are your opportunity to voice your opinion on the projects proposed. You may also submit letters to the Board in the event you cannot attend a given meeting.
