What happens after the Board reaches a decision?

Once the matter has been decided, a decision is written and filed with the Town Clerk. After a 20-day appeal period, the applicant is notified that the certified decision is ready for pickup. Then, the applicant records the decision at the Barnstable County Registry of Deeds. The applicant returns a copy of the recorded decision to the Board of Appeals Office and the Building Department. The Building Department may not issue a building permit or occupancy permit without receiving a copy of the recorded decision.
