About Us

The Planning Department is responsible for guiding the conservation and development of the town. By reviewing proposed developments, designing town projects, providing information on public and private developments, and administering the town's Geographic Information System (GIS) for mapping, information retrieval, and analysis, we provide guidance and support to the Historic District Commission, the Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Commission, and the Town Planning and Zoning Commission.

 

Whether you are expanding or relocating your business, developing a new residential neighborhood, or feel that you will be impacted by a proposed development, we are here to help you navigate the planning and zoning process. Even if you are just thinking of developing a project in town, come see us first and we can set up a confidential meeting with our Staff Development Team to help you better understand what will be required of you under the various planning, zoning, building, fire, engineering, and health codes so that you can make more informed decisions about your project.

 

We have designed this web page to be a clearinghouse for planning and zoning information, where you can get contact information; maps; regulations; application forms; procedures; agendas, legal notices, and minutes; demographic data; answers to many of your questions; and much more with a few clicks of your mouse. If you cannot find what you need, let us know and we will see if we can add it to this site in the future.

Did You Know?

Pollinators such as Bumble Bees, Honey Bees, and Hover Flies are responsible for pollinating one-third of the food we eat.  These pollinators are under threat from parasites, pesticides, viruses, and loss of both food and habitat. 

 

What can you do to help?  Avoid using insecticides and herbicides on your property.  Most insecticides are not selective and kill or compromise any insect that comes in contact with them.  Similarly, herbicides not only kill the weeds on your patio or driveway and the poison ivy on the edge of your lawn, but also the weeds and wildflowers that support pollinators on the fringes of your property.  Both products wash off your property into wetlands and watercourses, further compromising amphibians, fish, and the aquatic plants they feed on.

 

You can also plant wildflowers, milkweed and other plants designed to attract butterfiles, hummingbirds, and pollinators, which in many case will also support beneficial predators such as Lady Bugs, Lace Wings, and Praying (Preying) Mantis that feed on Aphids, Thrips, and other garden pests.
