Why did I receive a hearing notice via certified mail?

You will receive a hearing notice if you are an abutter ( as defined by law, generally within 300 feet) to a proposed project that will be reviewed by the Planning Board at a public hearing.  In addition, notices are published for two consecutive weeks in the Sun Chronicle.  You are not required to attend the hearing.  The notice is only to inform you that a hearing is being held in the event that you have questions or concerns related to the project.
