***Please Note:  While the Zoning Officer will gladly discuss your proposed project with you, conversations on the phone or in our office with the Zoning Officer are not binding on the Zoning Officer because of misunderstandings which arise in communications of this nature.  What you think you said may not be what we think we heard.  You must submit a zoning permit application, along with the required supporting documentation to get a formal and unequivocal response from the Zoning Officer.***
