Starting a Project?

The first step of any project is to contact the Zoning Enforcement Officer (ZEO). The ZEO will be able to tell you:

What Zoning District Your Property Is Located In

Knowing the district of your property is an essential first step for any town project. It helps you navigate specific regulations, zoning requirements, and guidelines. Each district has its own rules for land use, building codes, and development restrictions. By identifying your property's district, you can ensure compliance, save time, and make informed decisions. Understanding your district lays the foundation for a successful project that respects the community while maximizing its potential.

Application Guidance

The ZEO will provide essential guidance on required permits, approvals, and licenses, streamlining your application process. Save time and ensure a smooth project journey by consulting with the ZEO for clear instructions on the necessary documentation. Take the proactive approach and set yourself up for success with the ZEO's expertise in navigating the application requirements for your project.

Zone Compatibility Check

The ZEO holds the key to determining whether your planned activities are allowed within the designated zone, according to the Municipal Code. This vital check ensures that your project aligns with the specific regulations and zoning provisions, saving you time, effort, and potential complications. By consulting the ZEO, you can gain clarity on what is permissible in your zone and proceed confidently, setting the stage for a successful and compliant project.


Reach out to the ZEO as your first step to determine if involvement with the Planning Board is necessary. Their expertise ensures your project follows the correct channels, connecting you with the appropriate board for further support. By consulting the ZEO for potential Planning Board involvement, you can navigate your project pathway more effectively, accessing the guidance needed to achieve your goals.
