Land Use and the Zoning Board

All existing and proposed property (lots and buildings) in the Town can be characterized as ‘conforming’ or ‘non-conforming’ under current Zoning Ordinances.   Occasionally property owners seek to change or use property in a manner that requires an Appeal to the Zoning Board.  The Zoning Board has the power to act on a property-specific application for a Special Exception, a Variance, or an Appeal from an Administrative Decision.

The Selectboard acts as the Zoning Enforcement Officer, and may refer specific situations to the Zoning Board for resolution.

The regular meeting time for the Zoning Board is the third Wednesday of each month. Meetings of the Board are posted at the Town Offices and at the Post Office.
