How do I find out about projects in my neighborhood?

Applications and supporting materials for pending projects that require a public hearing are available at www.NorthamptonMA.gov/Pending or Planning & Sustainability, City Hall,210 Main St., Northampton (8:45 AM to 4:30 PM). Planning staff is available to answer questions: www.northamptonma.gov/Directory.aspx?did=22.

Public Hearing notices are available at www.gazettenet.com/Public-Notices (search for Northampton) and public agendas are posted http://northamptonma.gov/agendacenter. For some projects abutters will get mailed a notice about two weeks prior to the hearing, and a notice will be posted on the property. (Notice is not mailed for continued public hearings, but they are posted at the agenda center.)

Not all projects require a public hearing. Those projects may be reviewed at the Building Department website.
