Community Development Department

Beth Della Valle – Community Development Director (Interim)

The Community Development Department was created in 2007 to provide code enforcement, planning, geographic information systems (GIS) and community development services. We deal with most land use, construction, development and conservation issues facing the community.

Code Enforcement Walk-In HoursMinimize

The Department has set hours where you may speak with a Code Enforcement Officer without an appointment.  These hours are listed above, on near the top right of this page.  This is time we offer for you to ask general questions about codes and permitting, to review building files, and to submit permit applications for smaller projects such as decks, minor additions, garages and so forth.  This is not the time to submit applications for larger projects such as the construction of a new house or a new commercial building.  For larger projects, or for anything that will require more than about 15 minutes, please call 363-1002 and ask Catherine to help you schedule an appointment with one of our Code Enforcement Officers. 

Beginning July 1, 2015 the Planning Department will be holding walk-in hours on Mondays from 2:00 - 4:00 pm and on Wednesdays from 10:00 am - 12:00 noon. This is a time when you can meet with the Town Planner without an appointment to discuss your project and/or upcoming Planning Board agenda items.
