Planning & Zoning

In Lincoln, Planning and Zoning has three aspects, each intertwined with the other. 
Planning: The Planning Commission, with the Addison County Regional Planning Commission, creates and updates the Zoning Regulations and the Town Plan, helping to assure that the Town develops in a way that maintains our natural beauty and viewshed while allowing for controlled growth. The Zoning Regulations and Town Plan inform and guide how Zoning is implemented and enforced.
Zoning: The Zoning function is to ensure that the Zoning Regulations are followed. Zoning has two aspects:
The Zoning Administrator receives permit applications, administers, and enforces the Zoning/Subdivision Regulations. 
The Development Review Board is a quasi-judicial board that hears applications for unique situations, such as conditional use, waivers, or subdivisions, as well as appeals of the decisions of the Zoning Administrator.

For more information on what permit you might need, what the costs might be, etc. check out the Zoning Permits here.

We always welcome your calls and questions at the Lincoln Town Office.
