Special Permit and Site Plan Approval Hearings: Presenting Your Plan

Sep 27, 2012News

If you are starting a new business or expanding your current one, your municipal planning commissioner or building inspector may tell you to obtain a special permit or site plan review. Under Massachusetts law, this usually means presenting your application at a public hearing, and obtaining a favorable vote from the applicable planning board or zoning board of appeals. Regardless of whether you, your architect, or your lawyer presents your plan, preparation is the key to success.
