Zoning Ordinances


If you own property, land, home or a camp on waterfront property, you are required by State of Maine law to meet certain criteria prior to building new or upgrading existing dwellings. 

In addition, to prevent water contamination and soil erosion, there are requirements that must be met when removing trees, brush or plantlife. 

Finally, Lowell is home to a number of ponds and streams, many of which are protected areas. Please refer to the Lowell Shoreland Zoning Ordinance prior to ANY activity where water is concerned.
