In most cases, a "Form B" of an application for a Certificate of Appropriateness requires a Public Hearing. A Public Hearing enables neighbors and others to express their views and comments on a proposed alteration (e. g. for building additions, outbuildings, swimming pools, driveways, parking lots, etc.). Legal notices are to be prepared for Public Hearings and publicized in a newspaper in the area not more than 15 or less than 5 days before a Public Hearing.
The Historic District Commission publicizes Legal Notices in the Main Street News not more than 15 or less than 5 days before a Public Hearing, which take place during a regular Historic District Commission meeting. Legal Notices are also publicized on the Town's website and sent out via regular mail to abutting neighbors.
Public hearings are open for the public to attend. Letters may be sent in advance to the Historic District Commission, 52 Lyme Street, Old Lyme, CT 06371. Application materials are on file and available for inspection at the time of the Historic District Commission hearing or by calling 434-1605 ext. 224 for an appointment at the Memorial Town Hall.
