The Code Officer is responsible for enforcing the Town’s ordinances, reviewing building permit applications, issuing building permits, attending meetings of the Planning Board and the Board of Appeals, and investigating complaints from citizens as well as from state and federal agencies.
Common questions include those regarding building permit applications, setback measurements for building projects and determining what trees can be cut on the shore line.
Shore front is something the Town is fortunate to have and enjoy. With this good fortune comes the responsibility to protect and preserve it for generations to come. The Town’s ordinances give guidance to help protect St. George’s fragile resources both on the shore and inland. A permit is needed for any project located in the 75' buffer zone of Shoreland Zoning.
