Planning & Zoning

Zoning Regulations

A zoning map and related ordinances help regulate land development in the town. There are three basic zoning categories:
  • Commercial
  • Industrial
  • Residential
Within the Town Code, each category is broken down more specifically, allowing for various uses and intensities of development in different parts of the town.

Location Standards

Zoning ordinances also contain standards concerning where and how a structure may be located on a lot. These standards can include restrictions on:
  • Building height
  • Building setbacks
  • Minimum lot area
  • Minimum yard area
  • Percentage of lot coverage


If a proposed project, development, or structure does not conform to current zoning regulations, relief from the strict interpretation of those regulations may be granted after a hearing before the Zoning Board of Appeals.
