Residential Building Permits

Whether you’ve just built a new home or moved into an older home, the day may come when you desire to add to or improve your property. When this time comes, the question always arises … do I need a permit?

And, of course, our answer is that you should check with the Building division. The Village's Building Code specifically states that, “A permit shall be obtained before beginning construction, alteration, or repair …,” and this covers just about everything. However, for your own protection and best interest, it is always a good rule to check with the Building Department.

See the Residential Permit Application for more information.
