Building permits are needed and available for structural changes to the exterior or interior of your home. Limited home businesses are allowed in most locations and require a home occupancy permit.
Zoning permits are issued in accordance with procedures spelled out in state law. Most permits become effective 15 days after being signed by the Enforcement Officer (unless appealed by someone qualifying as an ‘interested person’). Permits must be posted in a visible location on the property governed by the permit. However, in most instances, this is the extent of public notice regarding issuance of the permit. Individuals wishing to stay abreast of permit activity in particular areas of the Town may wish to review files maintained in the Planning and Zoning accessible.
