May I apply for a waiver for certain permit requirements?
The Town Council may grant a waiver of permit requirements only after a duly noticed public hearing where good cause has been shown on the grounds as listed in the town code. The criteria for granting a waiver are listed in the Somerset Town Code section of the respective permit. Applicants may appeal the Council’s decision by filing an appeal within 30 days to the Circuit Court of Maryland. Please describe your waiver request in the description section of the application: Town of Somerset Permit and Waiver Application
