Please check the Projects & Development page to stay up on items that are coming before our Planning Board or Town Council.
Public hearings and evidentiary hearings may be scheduled during a public meeting; however each hearing functions differently:
- Public (legislative) hearing – These hearings allow people to come before the Town Council to state their views. After receiving public comment, the item is turned over to the Council for discussion and a possible vote.
- Evidentiary (quasi-judicial) hearing – These hearings are different from other public hearings in that they resemble a court hearing where testimony is presented and the Town Council acts like a court of law. During evidentiary hearings, the Town Council receives only sworn testimony and other credible evidence. In addition, the Town Council must make findings of fact based upon the evidence presented. Citizens may give testimony in an evidentiary hearing after they have taken an oath
