The Comprehensive Plan is a philosophical document that reflects how residents define the quality of life for their community.
The Zoning Codes are the actual law that governs how these goals are achieved.

The Zoning Board of Appeals is a quasi judicial body that reviews and votes on applications that do not meet the requirements  of the Town zoning code.

An applicant must first have his proposed action denied by the Zoning Enforcement Officer before he can apply to the Zoning Board of Appeals for a Variance or Interpretation application.

Zoning Regulations – Select Chapter 250
Subdivision Regulations – Select Chapter 206
