More helpful information on Post-Sandy issues:
-- Letter from the Building Department and Planning and Zoning Department
The Town of Darien had many houses receive substantial damage as a result of Storm Sandy in late October 2012. In response to that natural disaster, the Town has established a policy that all storm rebuilding between now and December 31, 2013 will be eligible for some reduced application and permitting fees.
The idea remains trying to help people impacted by storm Sandy and encourage property owners to meet the new FEMA elevations which go into effect in July 2013. The Town has waived portions of the Planning and Zoning Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals and Environmental Protection Commission application fees, as well as Zoning Permit fees down to $60 (which the State requires to be collected pursuant to CGS 22a-27j). The Town has also decided to waive a portion of the Building Permit fees (the first $50,000 in value) for those property owners completing Sandy-related work, including house rebuilding and house elevations.
The fee waivers will only be in effect until December 31, 2013, which should be enough time for property owners to get their applications submitted, reviewed, and approved.
The Planning and Zoning Department
page will be updated every week with a list of the Zoning Permits pending within the Department. Click here
