Driveway Permits Required
Spring is the time that we remember any problems we have with our driveway; mud, bumps, drainage. Just a reminder that any work done on that portion of the driveway that meets the Town or State road right-of-way requires a Driveway Permit before the work commences. This includes just paving or re-paving.
Several homeowners have had their driveways accessing town roads re-paved or reconstructed only to learn after the work that it required a permit. Fees are doubled for any permits where the work has already been started. In addition, violations of the Regulations can result in a Violation or Misdemeanor charge.
The Town has requested assistance from paving companies asking for their cooperation in making sure that a valid permit exists before they pave. That obviously is not happening based on information we get from homeowners and the responsibility for the permit ultimately falls to the property owner.
Driveway Permit Applications can be obtained in the Land Use Office or on line. Processing applications may take 7-10 business days as the Public Works Department will view the site to make sure that no concerns related to adequate road drainage exist.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Land Use Office with any questions.
