The Hearing Process and Protocols


As you know, the Town ZBA Chair received Northgate’s Special Permit Application on October 18, 2021, seeking approval for their project.  The ZBA has scheduled and posted the date, time, and place of the Public Hearing on the matter.  The posting also provides the statutory basis and a brief statement of the facts to be considered. The hearing information was posted at least 14-days before the start of the Hearing.

This is an Application Hearing, meaning that an individual or entity has applied for a license, permit, variance, or other types of approval, and the specific board or committee responsible for acting on the request is holding a Public Hearing on the matter, in accordance with Mass State Law.
