Zoning Permit

A zoning permit is required but not limited to the following items:

  • Fences                
  • Pools                   
  • Patios     
  • Dumpsters
  • Porches
  • Porch/Patio coverings and awnings
  • Additions
  • Signs

Before any construction permit is issued or any proposed change of use or new construction is allowed, a zoning review must be completed to ensure there are no conflicts with the zoning ordinances. If the proposal does not comply with the zoning requirements and the applicant wishes to continue with the project, the applicant can apply to the Planning Board for a variance.

Survey

All property owners should have a copy of a survey for the property they own. If you are unable to locate your survey,  you can see if the town has a copy on file by clicking HERE and registering with our permit portal, if you have not already registered.

Please provide a copy of your survey when you are applying for a zoning permit.

Feel free to contact the construction and zoning department if you are unsure as to whether a zoning permit may or may not be required.

Certificate of Habitability and Fire Inspections

The certificate of habitability ordinance requires that the owner of the property obtain a Certificate of Habitability wherever there is a change of occupancy (as when a change of tenancy takes place) in a rental unit.

The certificate MUST be obtained before the new occupancy takes place.

Do not move in without a certificate of occupancy it is a violation.

It is strongly recommended that the application be submitted to the zoning officer at least 30 days before the change in ownership or occupancy, so that the required inspection can be scheduled and completed without undue inconvenience. Someone is always available during office hours to help with questions and to provide information if needed. If they cannot provide the specific information requested, the inquiry will be directed to the correct area for a timely response.

The Certificate of Habitability does not replace or supersede a home inspection.
