Changes to the Building Zone Ordinance
In June 2007, the Hempstead Town Board passed resolutions that significantly changed zoning requirements for one and two family dwellings. These changes became effective September 1, 2007.
Any application that did not obtain a building permit and begin substantial construction by this date are subject to the new regulations. Substantial construction as interpreted by the Building Department would include but not be limited by the following examples:
- Completion of footings and foundation, or
- Completion of rough framing on second story additions
Applicants filing to maintain existing construction, and applicants who obtain permits after the effective date will be subject to the new regulations.
