Higgins Beach Resource Site

Higgins Beach is a unique beach community with a character of cottages and beach houses on small lots. Recognizing that, there is specific zoning for Higgins Beach and its character, setting and lot sizes. This webpage is designed to provide residents, property owners, consultants and the general public with the resources necessary to review the zoning code, zoning map, floodplain requirements, shoreland zoning and other State level natural resource regulations that may apply to any construction or development activity within the area.
