MGL Ch 85 requires the Board to name all non-public Streets within the City. In addition, the Board also advises the City Council on all developments or land use policy decisions that fall under Council jurisdiction.
These include Site Plan Reviews, Special Permits, Zoning Changes, and Street Acceptances. Woburn’ City Ordinances require the Planning Board to appoint a member of its Board or the Planning Director to serve on the Biomedical Oversight Committee (BOC).
