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) at the same time of submission of the application. This information is required to perform a thorough site inspection, and non-receipt will only result in delays.
