Planning & Zoning Department
From a sleepy little farming community to a thriving mill metropolis, to a prospering municipality, the Town of Lyman has had a history deeply rooted in faith, family, and community. The Town of Lyman may have had very humble beginnings as a small farm town, but it has blossomed into a town whose slogan says it all “small town charm, big city services…”
The Planning & Zoning Department is responsible for the implementation of the Zoning Ordinance and Land Development Regulations, which dictate acceptable methods of land use for properties located within the Town of Lyman. The goal of our department is to ensure that development is conducted in a responsible way that promotes the overall health of the Lyman community.
