Step 2: Obtain Zoning or Planning Board Approval

If Zoning Board of Appeals or Planning Board approval is required, the next step is to complete and submit your application(s). Our zoning bylaws indicate the number of plan sets required for complete applications.  

You must observe the application deadlines in order to be placed on the agenda for either Board. The Zoning Board of Appeals meets the second and fourth Wednesday of every month and the Planning Board meets the second and fourth Tuesday of every month. If you require action from both boards, a joint public hearing may be held.

If meeting agendas are full, your application could take several months to be featured. Check to confirm the deadline for application submittals and possible meeting dates. Your attendance is required at the public hearing and professional representation is recommended.
