To:             All Prospective New Businesses and License Applicants

From:         Town Administrator and Board of Selectmen

Subject:      Zoning Enforcement Officer Certification of Compliance With Town Zoning
                   Bylaw For New, Changed, and Expanded Business Uses

Many new applicants for business permits and licenses such as used Cars, (Class Two License), Victualler, (selling of prepared foods) and Liquor have failed to obtain a written opinion from the Zoning Enforcement Officer before submitting an application to the Board of Selectmen.

In almost all cases these licenses require a minimum of a Site Plan Approval from the Board of Appeals before an application can be considered by the Board of Selectmen. Please take the time to contact the Building Commissioner's Office at 978-777-2850 to obtain this written certification before submitting any requests to appear before the
Selectmen.

In the event the applicant does not need any further approvals from the Board of Appeals, the Building Commissioner, Zoning Enforcement Officer will notify our office and the application will be scheduled for a hearing before the processing unless accompanied by this certification.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in this matter.

Ira S. Singer
Town Administrator
