Notice of Public Hearing

Please be advised that the Harrisville Planning Board will hold a second public hearing on proposed zoning ordinances on Wednesday, December 9, 2020 at 7:00 pm at the Harrisville Town Offices, 705 Chesham Road, to discuss:

  1. Amending Article XXVI – Definitions, by changing the term “Accessory Building” to “Accessory Structure.”
  2. Amending Article XII – Wetland Conservation Overlay District, in order to: update definitions to be consistent with state rules; better define a process for identifying wetlands; establish a 100-foot buffer around all wetlands; clarify what activities are allowed within a certain distance from the wetland edge; streamline a process for projects that require additional review; and reorganize and renumber the section accordingly.

A full copy of the proposed amendments is available at and at the Town Offices during regular business hours. Anyone needing assistance to attend, or wishing to attend remotely, should contact the Select Board Office one week prior to the meeting date.
