Public Improvements and Utility Construction

Unless adequate public improvements and utility services are already in place, all development must have construction plans for them. These can be approved as part of the development review process. If the Board approves, they can also be approved after the land use approvalPublic improvements must be constructed and accepted by the town before a building permit is issued for residential development. The same process must be followed before a certificate of occupancy is issued for commercial or industrial development.
