    Frequently Asked Questions

    Why are building permits required?

    The primary reason is to reduce the potential hazards of unsafe construction practice and ensure the public health, safety and welfare of family, friends, visitors and potential or perspective buyers. If construction projects do not comply with minimum code requirements as required by state law, the value of the customer’s investment may be substantially reduced. Obtaining a permit first will hopefully avoid problems in the future not only with building construction but other laws or ordinances such as compliance with our zoning regulations, development regulations, storm water and flood plain management.

    When is a building permit required for the construction of a residential detached accessory building?

    A building permit is required for all residential detached accessory buildings, garages, sheds or mini‐barns greater than 200 square feet.
