What is a Site Plan?

A site plan shows the footprint of a building, or group of buildings, with associated utilities and parking. The Planning Board requires site plan review for projects that involve the alteration, construction or change of use of any structure, other than a single-family or two-family dwelling. The site plan process requires a public hearing and notification of abutters, except projects which the Planning Board authorizes for "limited" site plan review, which does not require a public hearing or notification.
