Building Permits



Construction permits are required for most building projects and improvements. Depending on the project, a Zoning Permit may be required as well as a Building Permit. Before beginning your project, or signing a contract with a contractor, it is best to check with the Construction and Zoning Departments to confirm if a Construction and/ or Zoning Permit will be required for your project.

ZONING PERMITS are required for any expansion to a house footprint (deck, porch, room addition) or the addition of structures (pool, fence, shed, patio). The Zoning permit Application requires you attach a copy of your property survey detailing the location of the proposed project, including the proposed distances to the property lines. Contact Ralph Blakeslee, Zoning Officer, to determine if a Zoning Permit will be required for your project. Once the Zoning Officer approves your application, it will be forwarded to the Building Department for permits.
