The Town of Bremen is currently seeking volunteers to serve as alternate members on the Planning Board.  Please call the Town Office for more information. 


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.
