Regulations & Resources

If you are unsure of what type of permit is required for your proposed use or project, please begin here. The first step is to establish the underlying zoning and any overlay districts (if applicable) by locating your parcel on the zoning maps. Then reference the general use, dimensional, and parking requirements on the tables towards the end of the Zoning Regulations. Specific standards for special uses, nonconforming situations, or projects within overlay districts can be found throughout the text. Detailed requirements for permits are also outlined within the Zoning Regulations.
