Although there are no zoning laws in the Town of Jamaica, there are Federal, State and Local regulations that might affect any development or construction* on your property.  Check with the Town Clerk's Office to see if you need a permit.  You might need a permit if:

· Your property is in a Flood Easement

· You are putting in or replacing a Septic System

· You are putting in a driveway

· You are constructing a Building

· You want to burn Brush

And don't forget, if you are a Resident and you have a dog, you need to License your dog at the Town Office every year before April 1st.
