Ditto. You definitely need to check with the town. Find out what zone the property is located in then obtain the scope this zone covers. This is not a matter of permission, more how the property is zoned.
Of course these designations can be challenged but this is a long road...get ready to roll up your sleeves if this is the route you choose.
Some residentials only include medical, some allow offices and yet others additionally allow retail.
