What is a Reviewing Authority?

For applications seeking approval to operate a business the Town requires the business obtain site plan approval. The site plan is reviewed by the proper Reviewing Authority.  The Reviewing Authority for site plan approvals could be (1) the Code Enforcement Officer and Town Planner, the (2) Staff Review Committee, or the (3) Planning Board.  The Reviewing Authority Chart  defines which applications go before which Reviewing Authority.

For applications seeking subdivision approval for dwelling units and lots, the Town requires the subdivision obtain subdivision approval by the Planning Board.
