Hi,

We are a small family relocating from NYC to Fairfield.
I wanted to know if I need any permits for painting the outside (siding) of the house. I went looking of the town website (under the town code) but I wasn't able to find out anything specific.

You would not need a permit to paint your house. You only need a permit for major improvements like an expansion or something that requires a town inspection (electrical work, major plumbing, etc.). Jay

I should add that if the house is in a Historic District, you will need color approval from the Historic District Commission. Jay

I think Southport & Greenfield Hill are the only historic districts in town. NYtoCT, you may want to call the Director of Zoning in Fairfield [Joe Devonshuk, (203) 256-3050] to find out if your new home is located in a historic district.

There's a small area surrounding town hall that is also designated a historic district. I'm not sure if there's anything else besides that area and the one's listed above.
