Londonderry Planning Board aims to streamline its signature policy
Under the new policy, which will return before the board this week, the board chairman or secretary would be able to sign a plan at any time once the staff determines approval conditions have been met, rather than waiting until a meeting is in session.
Town Planner Cynthia May said similar policies are used in dozens of other Granite State communities. May suggested Londonderry adopt a procedure where at the time of conditional approval, town staff would give a recommendation to the board on whether to grant final approval once conditions have been met.
She said that this would enable developers to get started on projects sooner without any “unnecessary holdup for what is essentially a formality.”
Board Chairman Arthur Rugg said the document was being reviewed by the town’s attorney prior to this week’s workshop, with a public hearing to follow.
