400 CMR 3.02 - Program Overview

The Expedited State Permitting Program (Program) promotes the expedited state permitting of commercial, industrial, and mixed-use projects on sites designated as a "Priority Development Site" under M.G.L. c. 43D and "Growth District" by the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development, subject to certain requirements and exclusions specified in 400 CMR 3.00. The Program requires all state agencies, commissions, departments, and other state entities responsible for issuing permits, as defined in 400 CMR 3.00, for projects proposed on such sites to review and take final action on a complete permit application within 180 calendar days, or 210 calendar days for permit review processes requiring a public comment period. State issuing authorities are encouraged to work together for each project, wherever possible, and may provide for pre-application conferences to streamline the permit review process. Doing so will ensure that sites throughout the Commonwealth previously identified as appropriate locations for significant new growth are highly attractive for development.
