The Zoning Commission establishes, promulgates, and enforces the Town’s Zoning Regulations.
Redding’s first Zoning Regulations, adopted in 1950, set out to “preserve the predominantly residential and farming characteristics of the community, and to protect the health, safety, and general welfare of the residents.” The Regulations, amended over the years with the last major revision being in 1996, work to balance the rights of the individual property owner and a community goal to preserve Redding’s character. The Commission regulates special use permits, accessory apartment permits, land clearing and re-grading permits in addition to residential and commercial uses and lot requirements. It established specific “zones” within the Town to group like uses together.
The commission has regular meetings the second and fourth Wednesday of the month in the Redding Town Hall Hearing Room (or as other wise posted) at 7:30pm and holds public hearings (as posted) for any changes in the Zoning Regulations or applications requiring Public Hearings.
Members of the Zoning Commission are elected Town Officials. Alternates are appointed by the Board of Selectman for four year terms.
Information regarding requirements under the Redding Zoning Regulations are available from the Zoning Office in the Redding Town Hall. Copies of the Zoning Regulations are available for purchase from the Redding Town Clerk or you can download them here.
Applications for Zoning Permits, Special Use Permits, Accessory Apartments and other activities requiring Zoning Application are available from the Redding Zoning Office in the Town Hall or the Forms section of this website.
