Meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month unless there are no matters requiring hearings.

The Development Review Board (DRB) is a five member quasi-judicial board appointed by the Select board. The DRB conducts hearings and issues decisions on all subdivision applications, certain zoning applications and appeals from actions of the Zoning Administrator. Regularly scheduled meeting dates are set for the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month unless there are no matters requiring hearings.  Agendas are posted on the bulletin board outside the zoning office, at local post offices and on the town list serve.  The Board has set DRB Rules of Procedure & Ethics that govern the process.

The zoning office encourages applicants to plan ahead for projects.  The reasons for this are that the zoning office is part-time, a hearing may be necessary and, due to public notice requirements, the application deadline in these cases can be well in advance of hearing dates.

The DRB currently has an Alternate Board Position Opening.  Letters of interest should be submitted to the Selectboard Assistant at selectboardassistant@thetfordvermont.us
