Storage Containers

On May 15, 2019 a letter was sent to all property owners of non-residential properties and all non-home business license holders to inform them that storage containers on sites without a valid building permit were not a legal use.

6/6/2019 - Thank you for your patience as the Town continues to consider how to best address shipping containers and the complexity with the Land Use Code. We’ve heard from many of you and are doing further research to explore a mutually beneficial solution.

Accordingly, we will be delaying enforcement until Wednesday, August 28, 2019.

7/1/2019 - A preliminary draft of regulations have been created and is available here.  Please note, these regulations are not final and must be approved by the Board of Trustees at a public hearing.

8/9/2019 - At the August 13 Board of Trustees meeting, the Trustees will discuss the information provided in an Information Memorandum.  This information was requested by the Trustees as a follow up to their discussion on the preliminary draft regulations and now includes three draft versions for the Trustees to consider.  If you're interested in providing your comments to the Board of Trustees, you may speak during the Public Comment section of the meeting, which is generally held at the beginning of the meeting.  You may sign up to speak on the night of the meeting on a form just inside the Board Room.

8/14/19 - At the August 13 Board of Trustees meeting, the Trustees asked staff to gather additional information and extended the enforcement deadline to October 31, 2019.
