  • New residential or commercial construction, (additions, garages outbuildings, sheds)
  • Repair or expansion of septic systems
  • Construction of driveways or access ways

I will meet with you to discuss your project and review the property for wetlands.

If necessary, Wetlands Permit applications are available through the Town Clerks office, and I routinely assist applicants with preparing their applications for review.
