The Zoning Administrator can assist with application questions and procedures. Generally, the process starts with an application for a zoning permit. The Zoning Administrator then acts to either approve the application if it meets all the terms of the Zoning Bylaw, deny it if it doesn't and/or refer it to the DRB if the Zoning Bylaw requires a hearing. Generally, only one additional application page is needed if the application needs DRB review. Once the DRB decision is issued, the Administrator issues the Zoning Permit consistent with the DRB decision.
The Zoning Administrator maintains office hours at the Town Office on Tuesdays, 9:30-2:30 or by appointment, and can be contacted at 802 257-1496 or at zoning(at)dummerston.org.
