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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
