Madison's Code Enforcement Officer works closely with the Planning Board on matters related to land use, building permits, shoreland zoning and commercial ordinances. The Code Enforcement Officer is available to meet with residents on an appointment basis. Please call the Town Office at 696 3971 for more details.
New updates to the Maine Uniform Building & Energy Code (MUBEC) apply to Maine towns that have a population of 4,000 or more. This causes some confusion regarding what kind of project requires a building permit. The State regularly updates the MUBEC statute so please contact Code Enforcement before starting a project.
