§ 131-10 - Action on completed application

  1. The Board shall consider the completed application within thirty (30) days of its acceptance. After review of the completed application and after a duly noticed public hearing, as provided in 131-11, the Board may grant a conditional approval of the completed application and request the applicant to prepare a final plat as provided for in 131-25 and 131-26. The Board shall act to approve or disapprove the completed application and final plat within sixty-five (65) days after submission of the completed application, subject to extension or waiver as provided in accordance with RSA 676:4-I(f).
  2. Conditional approvals shall be assigned an expiration date which is coincident with a regularly scheduled meeting not more than 90 days from the date when the conditional approval is granted. The Planning Board may, at its discretion, extend the expiration date beyond 90 days. However, in no case shall the expiration date be extended beyond one year from the original date when the conditional approval was granted unless the Planning Board for good cause agrees to extend the conditional approval for an additional period of time beyond that one year period.
  3. Approval of the final plat shall be certified by written endorsement of the final plat and signed by the Chairman or Secretary of the Board. The Chairman or Secretary of the Board shall transmit a copy of the final plat with such approval endorsed in writing therein to the Registry of Deeds of Carroll County. The subdivider shall be responsible for the payment of all recording fees. In case of disapproval of any plat submitted, the grounds for such disapproval shall be adequately stated in the records of the Planning Board and written notice given to the applicant.
  4. If the Planning Board has not obtained an extension as provided in 131-10.A and has not taken action to approve or disapprove the completed application within sixty-five (65) days of its acceptance, the applicant may obtain from the Selectmen an order directing the Board to act within fifteen (15) days. Failure of the Board to act upon such order of the Selectmen shall constitute grounds for the applicant to petition the Superior Court as provided in RSA 676:4.
