Building Permit Submission Deadline
The deadline to submit a building permit application for approval by the Planning Commission and review by the Historic Preservation Commission is the 2nd Wednesday of the month prior to the PC meeting at which the permit will be reviewed (this will be in the following month). This timing ensures the HPC will be able to complete a formal review before the PC meeting as this review is required for the PC to approve the permit in a timely fashion. If you are considering any renovation or building project at your house, be sure to get a copy of the procedures to apply for a Town Building Permit which will help you through the Town’s process.

Permits Up for Approval in May:
414 Brown St. Fence
326 Ridge Road Addition

Public Ways and Property (PW&P) Permits

The Planning Commission has revised PW&P permit instructions to reflect updates to the Code of Ordinances enacted by the Town Council. The PW&P permit pdf is required for any excavating or other work in public ways or on Town property. This now includes new or altered driveway aprons which use town property to connect to the pavement. The PW&P permit is also required for small wireless telecommunications facilities, and a new Article XVIII in the Code of Ordinances was established with the permit process and criteria for these facilities.
