When the Planning Board receives an application they must consider scheduling a site walk of the property. The Planning Board typically schedules site walks for Saturday mornings, but it is always recommended that interested parties contact the Planning Office to confirm a date and time for a project of interest.
Site walks are open to the public and are held with a few Planning Board members, the applicant, the applicant's engineers, and concerned abutters in attendance. This is an opportunity for all attendants to better grasp the proposal, determine areas of concern or needed attention, and ask some general questions about the proposal. The results of the site walk will be formally reported at the next available Planning Board meeting.
Attendees of all site walks participate at their own risk and should keep in mind weather conditions, terrain, and be properly dressed and equipped.
