Notice to Waterfront Property Owners

A reminder to all waterfront property owners in the Town of Huron:  Anything you plan to do today on or around your waterfront is most likely subject to oversight and regulatory authority which may involve the US Army Corps of Engineers, NYS Department of Environmental Conservation or other NYS Agency, or the Town of Huron Coastal Erosion or Dock and Mooring Laws.  To safeguard against the cost of having to remove or undo something for lack of proper permitting or adherence to existing regulations, we encourage you to first check with the Huron Building Department as to what may be required.  Too often contractors proceed with work without proper guidance or required permits, exposing the property owner to expense and frustration which could have been avoided.

Introduction

The Town of Huron is beautifully situated.  Bordered by Lake Ontario on the north, the Great Sodus Bay on the west and Port Bay on the east, Huron remains a picturesque, rural setting with rolling hills, orchards, farmlands and vineyards blended with vast wooded areas.  A hunting and fishing paradise, a place where agriculture, resort and industry come together in harmony with its natural beauty.
