Grievance Procedure prepared by Attorney Mark Hazelbaker for the DCTA.
Establishing Fees and Expenses Charged for Land Use Application and Development Review
Towns should assure that they are prepared for any major land use application. To do so, every Town should adopt an ordinance providing that a Town may engage consultants to advise the Town in connection with an application, with the applicants to pay those expenses. This is standard practice. The taxpayers of the Town should not be subsidizing the cost of reviewing development proposals.
