Our subdivision law works in concert with our Design Guidelines. Design guidelines convey the community’s vision for how development should fit into the community’s landscape and contribute to its character and quality of life. At the same time, design guidelines must also respect and support the efforts of those proposing projects in the town.
Stormwater Management is required for construction sites that disturb as little as 5,000 square feet of area, and possibly less on sensitive sites (A Notice of Ground Disturbance Form must be completed before every project). These standards / practices are designed to confine the construction site stormwater, water borne pollutants, and sediment via effective erosion and sediment control and stormwater retention structures.
