Please note that the Zoning Administrator will not have office hours on Monday, July 24 and Tuesday, July 25.  I apologize for the disruption to the regular schedule.  I will be checking emails during that week and will be available on a limited basis.  Please plan accordingly.

In order to maintain a cohesive town plan and ensure that construction in the town is not overly disruptive to neighboring residents or businesses construction must follow all zoning regulations and rules as defined by the town government.

Permits are required for all property development within the town, this includes new construction, additions or changes in land use.
