•   Cities with Chapter 43D Districts Cities with Chapter 43D  Districts

    In August 2006 Chapter 43D Permitting was enacted into law, establishing an inventory of Priority Development Sites (PDS) on which municipalities offer a maximum of 180 day local permitting process.  Cities and towns that opt into the Chapter 43D Program are able to target areas, through a streamlined local permitting process, specific for economic development and housing production.  As of February 2014, the 43D Program has been adopted by 86 municipalities on 179 sites.
