When will the Zoning Board Members respond to my email, letter or phone call?

The Zoning Board is subject to the Massachusetts Open Meeting Law (M.G.L. c. 30A, §§ 18-25). Responses from Zoning Board Members are strictly limited to during a public hearing. If members of the Zoning Board respond to a communication outside of the public hearing, it could be a violation of the Open Meeting Law. All communications will be discussed and responded to during the public hearings. If your inquiry is more general in nature and not specifically related to a current application on a ZBA agenda, the Zoning Administrative Secretary can assist you in obtaining the answers that you seek.
