pERMITTING

It is important to make sure that your town zoning allows you to keep animals, and if so, how many and what kinds. If they don't you can often apply for a permit to keep animals anyway, or to keep more than the zoned amount. The process of applying for a permit looks roughly like this.

  • Go to the zoning office, figure out your zoning, get an application.

  • Create a detailed plan for animal care and management

  • Talk to neighbors

  • Pay a fee when the application is turned in ( this varies from town to town; in Greenfield it's $300.)

  • Go to the next zoning meeting where they will talk about your proposal

  • Wait for a decision to be made

  • Upon approval, start planning for your animals.

How can we help?

I am familiar with zoning regulations and permitting processes and can walk you through the process or I can simply file for the permit in your name. This can be part of a complete plan you do with me, or just a one-time service.
