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 pending permits page or Planning & Sustainability, City Hall, 210 Main St., Second Floor, Northampton (8:45 AM to 4:15 PM). Planning staff is available to answer questions.

Public Hearing notices are available at the Daily Hampshire Gazette (search for Northampton) and public agendas are posted on the City's Agenda Center. 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. Notices are 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.
