§ 123-7 - Pre-Application Meetings.

Pre-application meetings are permitted for Minor Review and Major Review applications, and are highly recommended by the Board. Such meetings can identify potential problems in an application prior to major investments in site design by the applicant. Per RSA 676:4, II, all pre-application meetings are optional at the applicant'sdiscretion, and are separate and apart from the formal consideration of the application. The following shall apply:

  1. Preliminary Conceptual Consultation. This meeting shall be directed at a review of the basic concept of the proposal and suggestions that might be of assistance in resolving problems with meeting requirement during final consideration. Such consultation shall not bind either the applicant or the Board and statements made by Board members shall not be the basis for disqualifying said members or invalidating any action taken. The Board and applicant may discuss proposals in conceptual form only and in general terms such as desirability of types of development and proposals under the Master Plan. Such discussion may occur without the necessity of giving formal public notice, but such discussions may occur only at formal meetings of the Board.
  2. Design Review. The Board and applicant may engage in non-binding discussions beyond conceptual and general discussions which involve more specific design, planning and engineering details; provided that the design review may proceed only after formal public notice to the public and all abutters. Statements made by Board members shall not be the basis for disqualifying said members or invalidating any action taken. The applicant shall pay appropriate public notice fees as specified in Section 123-8.B, and shall provide all required materials and information required for public notice per Sections 123-11 and 123-12.
