What happens after the public hearing?
The Commission has 21 days within which to issue a decision after the hearing is closed. Ordinarily the decision is made the night of the hearing, or within a week of the closing of the hearing. The Commission members then vote on issuing the Determination of Applicability or Notice of Intent. The secretary then prepares all the forms, notarizes them and sends the originals to the applicant, with copies to the DEP for its files. After a 10 day appeal period is fulfilled, a positive Determination or Order of Conditions allows the applicant to begin his/her project.
