The Development Review Board (DRB) conducts public hearings and renders decisions on development applications subject to the Zoning and Subdivision Regulations. The Development Review Board fulfills the statutory role of an “appropriate municipal panel” as defined by the State’s Planning Statute in 24 VSA 117. The Board is compromised of resident volunteers appointed by the Selectboard according to the Town’s Charter. The DRB’s composition, responsibilities and conduct are defined in the Town’s Administrative Code Sub-Chapter 32 (PDF) and further defined in DRB Bylaws (PDF).

Off-the-Record Communication

Please note that the public may not speak with a DRB member about the substantive content of a pending application outside of a hearing. Off-the-record (Ex Parte) communication is prohibited, because it is an opportunity for one party to influence a decision maker outside the presence of other parties. When rights are at stake, this is a violation of due process, protected by the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

If you would like to inquire about the status of an application or are interested in serving on the DRB, please contact the Planning and Zoning Department at 802-893-1186 or email the Director of Planning and Zoning.
