Community Development

Staff provides support to the Planning Board, Zoning Board of Adjustment, Conservation Commission, and Windham Economic Development Committee. We also oversee the building permit and code enforcement process.

We encourage residents to contact us with any questions or concerns that they may have, or for more information on the Town's zoning and other requirements. Here are numerous links to items related to our Department, which we hope will be of assistance to you.

Residents can now file formal complaints to the Code Enforcement Administrator online. The Code Enforcement hyperlink to the left of the page will direct you to the form.

Fence, sign permits and Minor WPOD applications can be found in the Code Enforcement hyperlink to the left of the page.
