The Department of Planning and Development serves the community by providing for the health, safety, welfare, and safety education of the public in the following areas:

**Please Note:  Building Permits can only be taken in until 4:00pm unless you are paying by a check, then the receipt will be mailed to you the next business day.

**PLEASE NOTE** - You should have a copy of your survey with the paperwork when you purchased your home.  Also, the bank that holds the mortgage or the lawyer that did the closing should have a copy.  We probably don't have one if it is more than 15 years ago.  If you want us to check for one for you, you need to call ahead.  It might take a day for the research.


The Commissioner of Planning and Development coordinates the enforcement activities of these functions and additionally coordinates cases between the Planning Board, the Zoning Board of Appeals and the Town Board.
