Public comment is welcome at all Planning Board, ZBA, and Preservation Commission hearings unless otherwise noted. Residents are able to speak in favor or in opposition of a project. Our Boards are especially interested in hearing about specific conditions that may assist them in making a decision with regards to the specific zoning relief being requested; approval decisions often include special conditions specific to the property, adjacent conditions, or to mitigate future conditions.
If you cannot attend the hearing in person, you can submit written comment in advance. Please refer to this Services FAQ page to find the appropriate staff person to send your comments to. All public comment is submitted to the Board members prior to the hearing for their consideration and Boards consider these comments in rendering their decision. If you would like to see the plans for a project prior to a hearing, please contact staff.
