Zoning Permit Application - Contact the Zoning Administrator for assistance. To complete the process you will need to provide the Zoning Administrator with (1) a location sketch drawn to scale showing the location, shape dimensions of the lot, the building and existing buildings, (2) a property tax statement for the lot,and (3) a sanitary permit. Zoning permits are required for a new residence or commercial building; an addition; when establishing an address; when moving a building into, within or through the town; if building an accessory building or adding an addition to an accessory building; for installing an outdoor wood burner furnace; if razing a building; for adding a driveway, deck, porch, or pool; and more.
Conditional Use Permits
Generally a zoning district has two categories of land uses, permitted uses and conditional uses. When a use is designated as “conditional”, the use may be allowed if specific conditions are met. Conditional uses require review, an open process to gather public input on the proposed land use, and approval from the Town Board. See the Zoning Ordinance for a list of permitted and conditional uses for each zoning district.
