Checks made payable to the "Town of Webster" must be submitted at the time of application for the following:
The Town's portion under the State Filing Fee. This is calculated by MassDEP as part of their application process.
The Town's Administrative Fee of $105. This covers the cost of advertising the public hearing notice.
Peer Review Fees - if applicable. A peer review deposit will be required for major projects and in cases where violations occur. The Conservation Agent and/or the Conservation Commission will assess the amount of peer review fees required on a case-by-case basis. Unused peer review funds will be returned once a Certificate of Compliance has been issued.
The State requires that you notify the abutters within 100 feet of your project site based on a certified abutters list which you can obtain from the Town of Webster Assessor Office. Certified Abutters Lists are only valid for six months. There are several options for abutter notification:
Certificate of Mailing from the Post Office
Certified Mail with Return Receipt from the Post Office
Hand Delivery: you can hand deliver the notice and have your neighbors fill in our Evidence of Notification form. Please contact the Planning and Conservation Department for more information.
