Shoreland Zoning Info
Shoreland Zoning includes land within 250 ft of any designated great pond, river, saltwater body, the upland edge of a coastal wetland, or non-forested freshwater wetlands of 10 or more acres. It also includes within 100 ft horizontal distance of the normal high water line of any designed stream or brook.
If you are contemplating any work within the shoreland zone that includes removal or limbing of trees, clearing vegetation, removing or adding fill material, road work, soil disturbance, etc stop and call the office because you will likely need a shoreland zone permit and possibly Planning Board approval.
