January 2021 Cancellations & Rescheduling 

Procedurally, state law requires a hearing notice being published “…in a newspaper of general circulation within the territorial boundaries of the local government a notice of the hearing at least 15 days and not more than 45 days prior to the date of the hearing.”   However, the law does not make exceptions due to administrative errors and since The Telegraph did not publish our notice, we must reschedule our first meetings of 2021.  All items scheduled for the January 11th Zoning Commission Hearing have been forwarded to the January 25, 2021 MBPZ Hearing agenda. Certificate of Appropriateness applications will be reviewed by the MBPZ Design Review Board will be moved to the Tuesday, January 19th Design Review Board agenda.  Both meetings will be online. Please visit MBPZ.org for further information or updates.
