With the increase in building activity along our waterways in town, the Planning Board has worked for over a year on proposing new regulations for waterfront building.  The goal is to balance the interests of the town, protect water quality in all our waterways, and maintain landowner’s ability to use and enjoy their properties.  We began with a committee with members from the Zoning and Planning Boards which we followed with Planning Board involvement and ultimately, legal review.  The Planning Board believes that the changes in this document provide increased flexibility for landowners while protecting water quality in our rivers, lakes and ponds.
