Public Hearing Notices

Public Hearing Information

Unlike committee or board meetings, hearings are generally concerned with a single agenda item. Hearings may even be conducted during the course of a regular meeting. Hearings provide an opportunity for residents or concerned individuals to present comment or testimony to a committee or board before a decision on the subject at hand is made.

The following notices are posted online for convenience, and failure to post online shall not affect the finality or effectiveness of the decision of each hearing. The most recent hearing dates are listed first. Additionally, you may search the Wicked Local database for additional Massachusetts public notices.

Public hearings are required by law for the following commissions before they can take certain actions: Select Board; Conservation Commission; Planning Board; and the Zoning Board of Appeals.

Hearings are typically held to issue permits or licenses or to amend a Town of Hanover regulation.
