When do I need a building permit?

All projects are subject to a zoning review, even if a building permit is not required and if you are outside your building envelope. These projects include:

  • Alterations or repairs
  • Any interior remodel that would affect life safety issues
  • Any new construction
  • Demolition
  • Manufactured homes placed in or out of a park
  • Moved structures before the move takes place
  • Out-buildings over 120 square feet in size
  • Porch roof coverings
  • Re-roofing
  • Structural additions

Demolition Permits are required. Please contact Building Services to be certain a building permit is or is not required.
