Department News and Upcoming Events

COVID-19 Update - 3/23/20 8:00am

Per the Town Manager:  To the extent possible, inspections department members are to perform inspections in unoccupied areas of buildings where no other persons are in the proximate areas, especially avoiding closed or confined spaces occupied by others. The preference is to visit sites when other persons are not on-site. As necessary, inspections staff may meet with minimal personnel from developers/builders at the building site, but must maintain extended distances from others and, preferably, meet in open, external spaces. Please consult with departmental leadership for further guidelines.

The Planning Board meeting scheduled for March 24 has been cancelled.
