The Planning & Zoning Department is located on 2nd floor of the Town Hall, first door on the left.

The Planning & Zoning Department is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the Village and Town Zoning Regulations, ongoing land use planning efforts, grant preparation and administration and maintenance of this web site.  The Planner/Administrative Officer works with the Planning Commission in developing the Town Plan and the Village/Town Regulations which must be re-adopted every eight years.  The department also is the administrative and technical support for the Design Review Boards, Development Review Boards and Conservation Commission.

The department reviews all applications and assists the public in understanding the zoning regulations and helping them through the permit process. The Administrative Officer is also responsible for taking action on all known zoning violations. Last, the Planner/Administrative Officer is charged with securing grants relating to planning-related projects.

The Administrative Officer approves applications which do not need a hearing, such as additions, new home construction, accessory buildings, fences and signs to name a few.

The Department is happy to assist property owners and other members of the public.
