Planning Board Info – Agenda and Minutes

Steps to gain Town approval of your business idea:

-Click the Site Plan Application at the right. After completing it, submit it to the Code/Zoning Enforcement Officer.

– After the Code/Zoning Enforcement Officer has determined that your Site Plan Application is complete and complies with the Zoning Law he will forward it to the Planning Board for review.

– The Planning Board will contact you to have you attend their next meeting.

  1. Planning Board Meetings are held at the Town Hall Meeting/Court Room on the first Thursday of every month at 7 pm.
  2. At your first Planning Board meeting you’ll be required to submit 2 separate checks: One $100 check for the Application fee and one $30 check for the Escrow fee. For larger projects additional escrow fees will be required.
  3. Also, if you do not own the property on which you are planning to conduct the business on, you will need a letter from the owner stating you have permission to do so.

– If the Planning Board approves your site plan, you will then need to go to the Code Enforcement Office/Building Department and file for a Building Permit.

Did you know...

Cairo is home to the oldest geologic site in the world, with evidence of a prehistoric forest dating back roughly 387 million years. In 2012, an archaeological dig at a stone quarry on town property discovered the remains of some of the earliest trees to evolve.  These Devonian period fossil root systems form the footprint of an ancient stand of trees belonging to the world’s oldest known forest. Evidence of an extinct, palm-like tree named cladoxylopsid was discovered, as well as conifer relative (archaeopteris) that may be the missing link between trees that reproduce with spores (like ferns) and the seed bearing trees we know today.
