The final concept plan for the Bremen Town Center Property has been submitted by Wright-Pierce planner Travis Pryor.  The plan is on display in the Bremen Town Office and attached below.

The Town Center Property Committee, a part of the Bremen Conservation Commission Recreational Subcommittee, will be referring to this concept plan as they move forward on the project.

The Town of Bremen is currently seeking volunteers to serve on the following boards:

Planning Board  –  1 seat

Planning Board Alternate – 1 seat

Please call the Town Office for more information. 


The Town Office will be closing on Wednesdays at 12:00 PM effective August 8, 2018 Temporarily Due to Clerical Staff Vacancy


The following is offered as a friendly reminder to all Bremen residents who are contemplating any construction-related activity on their property including but not limited to new construction, expansion, relocation, replacement, demolition, clearing, change of use, and road building.  Under those circumstances, residents should do the following to see what is allowed, what ordinances apply, and what might require a permit:

  • Consult the appropriate Town ordinances, which are on the Town’s website.
  • Consult the Town Code Enforcement Officer; the Town office can supply contact information.

The following options also are available:

  • Apply for an informal, non-binding pre-application conference with the Planning Board.
  • Confer with the Town planning consultant. See the Town Clerk for the consultant’s hours. 

In sum, the Town and its staff stand ready to help residents through any construction-related activity.  Prospective applicants must take the first step to consult the appropriate ordinance before construction begins.  After-the-fact permits are not automatically granted and are very expensive to acquire.  If an after-the-fact permit is not granted and a violation has occurred, the applicant may be required to undo what has been done at his or her expense.

Thank you.


The Bremen Conservation Commission welcomes visitors to our meetings and would love to get more members of the community involved. We are looking for a new regular voting member to bring the size of the group to seven. We also welcome associate members. Thanks! Contact the Town Center for more information.
