New Additions: 2 to 4 months

Special Permits: 4 months or more

Subdivisions: 6 months or more

Projects within 100’ of a Wetland:

If you’re planning on doing work on your property in 2018, now is the time to contact a Professional Land Surveyor. They can complete the work during the winter months so you’ll be ready to go when the warm weather returns.
