The Town of Longmeadow’s Building Commissioner is committed to promoting and maintaining the Massachusetts State Building Code and the Town’s Zoning Bylaws, which are intended to protect the public health, safety, and welfare of all citizens, as well as protect and enhance the quality of life in our community. The Building Commissioner’s enforcement power of the State Building Code is total, and the Building Commissioner can order a building closed for non-compliance with its standards. The Building Commissioner also enforces the Zoning Bylaws of the town. Per state law, the Building Commissioner may not enter private property to conduct inspections unless: (1) the property owner consents to the entry; (2) an administrative search warrant is issued by a court; or (3) there is an emergency situation requiring immediate entry. The property owner is ultimately responsible for bringing property into compliance with Town Zoning Bylaws.
Note: When you submit a Request for Building / Zoning Enforcement form, you are filing a formal written complaint which becomes a public document. All Requests for Building / Zoning Code Enforcement should be submitted in writing via this form; the Town is not obligated to act upon any anonymous complaints or non-written submissions. The Town will inform the resident in writing of any decision not to enforce the zoning bylaw/building code in response to the complaint as required by law. Zoning enforcement findings and actions may be appealed to the Zoning Board of Appeals within 30 days of the decision. Residents will not be informed regarding ongoing interactions between the Town and the allegedly offending party, including any decision to enforce.
