Heath Road Bridge Dedication

Bremen town officials and the family of the late Horace Ransom officially opened the Heath Road Bridge with a dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony the morning of Saturday, July 7.

The bridge was dedicated to Ransom, who was a longtime resident of Heath Road and a leader in the town’s fire department, according to Selectman Hank Nevins.

 Recording Secretary for Bremen Planning Board needed.  See job duties below:

Recording Secretary Job Duties 2018


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.
