What is the permitting process?

Trinity's due diligence included an updated analysis of permitting and relevant land use boards and committees met on Tuesday, June 7th via Zoom to review and provide comments.  In addition to Federal and State permits, Trinity anticipates the need to obtain the following local approvals from the Town of Medfield: 

 Medfield Planning Board 

• Proposed Project and Development Plan Approval

 Medfield Historical Commission

• Demolition permit for Buildings 10 and 27-B

 Medfield Historic District Commission 

• Certificate of Appropriateness

• Certificate of Non-Applicability 

• Certificate of Hardship

 Medfield Building Department 

• Application for Permit to Demolish Structure

• Medfield Building Permit Application - Commercial & Multi-Family

• Final Construction Control Document 

• Certificate of Occupancy

 Medfield Highway Department 

• Street Opening Permit

 Medfield Public Works Department

• Trench Permit

 Board of Water and Sewer 

• License to Install Water & Sewage

• Residential Building Water Application

• Residential Building Sewer Application

 If the project is approved by Town Meeting, Trinity will promptly begin detailed design and permitting. Various approvals by Town of Medfield boards and committees, as well as state and federal agencies, will be required.  There will be many other opportunities for the public to provide input on the project.
