This has happened a few times in Ludlow, and even if I give a verbal
response to the complainer, I always put it in writing so they have the
chance to appeal it to the DRB.
All decisions from the ZA are appealable and should be in writing.

The complainant can appeal the ZA's decision (the decision that no
violation exists) to the Zoning Board. Would be helpful if the ZA
would put his/her decision in writing as a response to the
complainant's request for enforcement.
