RSA 676:4 II. A planning board may provide for preliminary review of applications and plats
by specific regulations subject to the following:
(a) Preliminary conceptual consultation phase. The regulations shall define the limits of
preliminary conceptual consultation which shall be directed at review of the basic concept of
the proposal and suggestions which might be of assistance in resolving problems with
meeting requirements during final consideration. Such consultation shall not bind either the
applicant or the board and statements made by planning board members shall not be the
basis for disqualifying said members or invalidating any action taken. The board and the
applicant may discuss proposals in conceptual form only and in general terms such as
desirability of types of development and proposals under the master plan. Such discussion
may occur without the necessity of giving formal public notice as required under
subparagraph I(d), but such discussions may occur only at formal meetings of the board.
