From Wednesday, Nov. 14, through Tuesday, Dec. 18, the following Town of Lyme and Lyme Land Conservation Trust preserves will be closed Mondays through Fridays as part of the firearms deer hunting season: Beebe Preserve, Chestnut Hill Preserve, Hand Smith, Honey Hill Preserve, Jewett Preserve, Mount Archer Woods, Eno Preserve, Pickwick’s Preserve and Plimpton Preserve. Only licensed hunters who have been granted a permit of consent for the property will be allowed in these preserves. (All of these preserves will be open to non-hunting users on Saturdays and Sundays.)

Q: We’re thinking about putting an addition onto our house this summer. What permits or applications do we need?
A: To begin the process, download a Zoning Permit application from the website, fill it out completely and file it with the Town Clerk at Town Hall, weekdays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Zoning Enforcement Officer Bernie Gigliotti will review your application and determine which other permits, if any, you may need to apply for; walk you through the approval process for your project; and identify the fees your home-improvement project will entail. (Depending upon the nature of your planned addition, you may be asked to submit other applications during the approval process – for a building permit, wetlands permit, zoning variance request or other specific permits.) Bernie works out of Town Hall on Mondays and Tuesdays, from 9 a.m. till noon, and can be reached at email@example.com. To submit a question for possible inclusion on this website, please send your question, along with your name and contact information, to AsktheLymeBoS@gmail.com.
