Building & Zoning Enforcement

The primary objective of the Building Inspector/Zoning Enforcement Office is to protect the public safety and welfare of our residents and guests. The office oversees all aspects of construction by ensuring that all construction, re-construction, alterations, repairs, moving, or demolition of buildings and/or structures conform to all the State and Town rules, regulations, codes, and ordinances. The office reviews applications, issues permits, answers zoning inquiries, and performs inspections.
