Planning Board Organization, Rules and Duties

MEETINGS/EVENTS CALENDAR:


September 27, 2019 – Applications for building permits to be considered at the next Planning Board meeting must be filed with the Town Office by 12:00 pm 

October 6, 2019 – Planning Board site plan visits (if any) at 3:00 pm

October 8, 2019 – Planning Board meeting at 7 pm, Bremen Town Office

NOTE:  All Planning Board Agendas are Posted the Wednesday before each meeting as a Notice in The Lincoln County News

Board Meeting Minutes are added to this website AFTER they have been signed by the Board – usually the next scheduled meeting.


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.
  • 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.


Planning Board

Applicants and prospective applicants for approvals by the Bremen Planning Board have a new resource available for guidance and support. The Select Board has engaged Robert Faunce of Lincoln County Regional Planning Commission to work with the Planning Board on a consultant basis.  Applications and all supporting documentation will be directed to “Bob” thru the Town Office, the deadline for submissions for each meeting will remain.   As the Board’s meetings are held on the second Tuesday, the deadline will typically fall on the last Friday of the previous month.

The Land Use Ordinance affords applicants an opportunity for informal discussion directly with the Planning Board. This will not change. However, it is hoped that many technical questions, ordinance questions, and review of applications for completeness will be resolved by making this resource available to the public before applications are submitted or added to the Board’s agenda. For questions and suggestions, please call or email the Bremen Town Center.
