The following DEP forms are most commonly used to request commission action under the Wetlands Protection Act. If in doubt, contact a commission representative to determine which applies to your specific needs.
In addition, the Otis Conservation Commission conducts site visits prior to its public hearings and requires, with each application, a “Permission to Access Site” form, signed by the property owner or his/her authorized agent as designated on the application.
In addition to requirements outlined on the DEP application forms, the Otis Conservation Commission requires:
- a check, payable to the Town of Otis, in the amount of $75 to cover the cost of a legal advertisement, publication of which is required in a newspaper with circulation in the town at least five business days in advance of the public hearing.
- Five (5) copies of each application and all supporting documentation.
- Written permission to access the site, as noted under “Forms”
Any additional supporting documentation must be submitted to the commission (electronically, or three paper copies) a minimum of two days (48 hours) prior to the hearing.
