Design Guidelines

During the preparation of the new Bennett Land Use Code in 2014, design standards were removed from the old Land Use Code. New design guidelines will reflect the Town's desire to attain a desirably built environment through collaboration rather than strict regulation. We need your input on preparing design guidelines for future development!

Zoning Map Update

Initial updates to the Town's Official Zoning Map were completed in early 2015 concurrent with the adoption of the new land use code. A second round of zoning map updates are needed to complete the transition of several outdated Planned Development's and non-conforming zoning districts into one of the new zoning districts. Stop by to get details on the zoning map update!

Street Improvement Plan (SIP)

The SIP is underway, beginning in January with core sampling in some areas. Learn about the ongoing work on Bennett's streets including: 
-- How the data from core sampling will be interpreted.
-- What you can expect from road construction.
-- How construction may affect you.

DOING BUSINESS WITH BENNETT

Many of our ongoing town facility and infrastructure improvements provide opportunities for private contractors where the best bidder is awarded the project and in turn is responsible for construction of that project. This partnership between government and business works well to support local contractors as we improve and expand our town systems.Go to our website for postings of Request for Proposals (RFP) published by the town.
