    Gravel removal bylaw

    Our Planning Board is all aflutter over how our permits allow for the removal of gravel without an adequate mechanism to link it to development.

    Does anyone have a gravel removal bylaw or how do you make sure that you don't end up with gravel pits all over town?

    Do your state laws cover it?

    I know in NH, there's a whole chapter of laws on excavation....

    We're working on some changes to our regs...here's our in-process draft:
