Responsibilities of Committee
The Development Planning Committee (DPC) consists of representatives of the various town departments that are involved in facilitating or servicing development projects in town. The DPC functions under the direction of the Department of Economic Development and Planning (DEDP). The DPC holds regularly scheduled monthly meetings during which prospective developers can present development concepts and receive feedback from the town on a host of development related issues. The DPC facilitates early communication between the town and developers during the project concept phase with regard to a variety of issues including, among other things, the following:
Consistency with the planning, zoning, building code, and land use regulations
Compliance with stormwater regulations
Availability and adequacy of public facilities (water mains, storm drainage, sanitary sewer, and roads)
Consideration of fire and life safety
Potential for land conservation or park land development
Economic and fiscal impacts
The DPC generally meets on the third Thursday of the month at 10 a.m.; the meetings are open to the public. Developers or their representatives wishing to be placed on the DPC agenda or for questions on meeting dates or times, contact Kathleen Reid at 518-439-4955, extension 1158.
