Private Road to become a Public Road

To have a private road become public, the following process must happen:

1. The requestor must go before the Planning Board to be approved by them.

2. The Town Engineer will then provide their feedback to the Planning Board.

3. This will need to be petitioned to the Town to take over the road. In which that would need to be done at Annual Town Meeting.

A blank petition can be found on the Select Board section of the Website and it needs to be submitted by the deadline that is set by the Select Board. That deadline is typically several months prior to Annual Town Meeting.
