Building Permit Applications for Town Parcels

Applications are reviewed for completeness and compliance with applicable codes and zoning requirements by Town staff. Code Enforcement Officials (CEO) inspect all buildings and construction sites for compliance with federal, state, and local codes. Fire inspections are performed by department personnel on a regularly scheduled basis.

If you are planning to remodel, build an addition or structure, erect a fence, install a driveway, or make any other changes to your property, contact the department before starting your project. They can help you determine what federal, state, and/or local ordinances might be applicable. All properties have minimum setbacks and restrictions depending on zoning and many projects require a permit. Permits are valid for up to one year depending on the type and scope of the project.
