The Department keeps all plans approved by the Planning Board and Conservation Commission. If the property in question was part of an application submitted for review there may be a plan on file.
The Planning Staff is available Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to meet with anyone interested in discussing a potential project, the permitting process and / or the requirements for application submittal. It would be prudent to call and schedule an appointment to ensure staff will be in the office when you would like to come by.
There are two kinds of applications heard by the Planning Board: those necessitating publication of a legal notice and those which do not. If an application is submitted in a timely manner and does not require a Public Hearing, it may be placed on the Planning Board’s next agenda.
If an application must be heard by Public Hearing, it could be between 30 and 45 days from submission of application to being scheduled as an agenda item. Obviously, scheduling is dependent on current project load.
The Department charges a nominal fee for copying ($0.20 a page). A full size plan sheet is currently $5 per copy. If a request for documentation requires staff time to research and compile, the charge will be the hourly rate of the administrative staff based on the number of hours required.
The Planning Board has scheduled meetings for 2010 on the second Tuesday of each month (7:00 PM) in the Town Hall (Cahill Auditorium). View the Planning Board page for the schedule of meetings, which can be downloaded in PDF format, and the current agenda.
