Planning & Zoning

Planning & Zoning

In order to keep our city beautiful, the town is split into two separate residential and commercial zones with each zone adhering to its own set of rules and regulations. To ensure that all structures follow these guidelines, a building permit must be obtained for any new covered structure. 

For information on these regulations and permits please contact:

A public hearing for the approval of amendments made to the official zoning map will be help at the MLWS office on Monday, February 25th, 2019, at noon. All changes made from the previous map will be presented and reviewed. All are welcome to attend.
