Development Review Board Report
(from Annual Report ending December 31, 2016)
The Development Review Board is charged with processing permits for subdivisions, variances, and conditional uses, as well as interpreting applicable zoning regulations.
Regular meetings are scheduled the third Monday of the month at 7:00 P.M. in the Town Clerk’s Office. Additional special meetings are scheduled as needed. Meetings are public and everyone is welcome to participate. All public hearings held by the DRB for receiving final plat applications on subdivisions, as well as variance requests and conditional uses, are warned in the Caledonian Record at least fifteen days prior to the public hearing. Permit requirements, including costs, and guidance about the permit process can be obtained from the Town Clerk or the Zoning Administrator. Subdivision permits typically involve two or three meetings as the original sketch plan, preliminary plat, final plat, and site map go through the approval process. Some permits may require extensive notifications, information gathering, legal consultation with the town attorney, and considerable discussion.
DRB meeting agendas and minutes are posted on the website, www.waterfordvt.org. I invite the
public to use the website to stay current with events pertaining to the DRB.
In 2016 the DRB approved the following permits:
1 Conditional Use
The following permits are in process:
1 Site review
1 3-Lot Subdivision
No permits were denied.
