Legal Notice

The Douglas Planning Board will be holding a public hearing on the adoption of amendments to the Zoning Bylaw for the Town of Douglas, Massachusetts, as required by the Town’s acceptance of the “Expedited Permitting Program” created by G.L. c. 43D, to be held on Tuesday, October 23, 2007, at 6:15 PM in the Douglas High School Auditorium. The following is a list of the areas to be amended:

• Section 6.0, entitled “Special Regulations,” to include a new Subsection 6.6, entitled “Priority Development Sites.” Said Subsection shall provide mechanisms for the change of facilities following the issuance of a special permit and/or site plan approval to projects located on sites designated as “Priority Development Sites.”

• Section 8.0, entitled “Overlay Districts,” Subsection 8.1, entitled “Water Resource Protection Overlay District,” to provide for filing and consideration of special permit and site plan review applications for projects located in said Overlay District and on “Priority Development Sites” simultaneously before joint session(s) of the Planning Board and the Board of Appeals.

• This section will be revised to include a reference to a new Geographic Information Systems (GIS) map as opposed to the original paper Plate 5 map. The new maps may contain revisions regarding new wells that did not exist at the time the original map was created. These wells may also be shown with a primary aquifer well radius shown around them.

• Section 9.0, entitled “Administration and Procedures,” Subsection 9.4, entitled “Site Plan Review,” to delete the requirement of site plan review for projects located on “Priority Development Sites” and already requiring a special permit.

The complete text of the proposed amendments can be obtained and/or reviewed from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday at the offices of the Douglas Town Clerk and the Douglas Planning Board, both located at 29 Depot Street in Douglas, Massachusetts.
