How do I contact the Zoning Administrator for assistance or if I have questions?

The Zoning Administrator's office is on the 2nd floor at Cole Hall in the Town Offices. Normally, the Zoning Administrator is available Monday - Tuesday - Wednesday 9:00am - 12:00pm. Since site visits for inspections may keep the Administrator out of the office at times, it is recommended that you phone for an appointment (802) 442-4038 ext. 5 or to ask questions. The answering machine will take messages if the Zoning Administrator is unavailable when you phone.
