A Development of Community Interest is a process by which the town identifies a development proposal which, because of its magnitude, scope, location or impact on the built environment, is likely to have influence or effect on the community as a whole. The developer is asked to hold an informational community meeting prior to entering into the regulatory permitting process. The community meeting is intended to inform the public of the proposal in the context of the Town's overall regulatory process and shall lay out a timetable and schedule of required permits and licenses. This forum is not intended as a public hearing, the purpose of the meeting is not for any group to deliberate or make decisions. The members of the public should be allowed to provide comments and raise certain concerns which the developer may take into consideration prior to filing the official application.
