The zoning in the town is almost entirely rural residential and agricultural, which requires that lots must be a minimum of a full one to two acres. We also have a growing amount of zoning for recreation and open space, which preserves land for residents' enjoyment. The newest zoning district is for community facilities that allows uses that serve the community such as places of worship.
