How Do I...?

Building & Zoning

What permits do I need? 

It is essential to obtain all required permits. Any work performed without the necessary permits will be subject to double permit fees and a failed re-sale use and occupancy certificate with the sale of the home. 

Any impervious surface, cumulative since September 2002 of 1,000 square feet or more, changes to grading and/or change to stormwater flow is subject to stormwater regulations and review.  

A design professional plot plan for primary structures, detached garages, additions and large projects are required with permit submission.  Building plans are to be signed and sealed by a design professional. 

Issued permits become void if work is not in progress within 180 days after issuance, there is no activity for 180 days or if work is not completed within one year. Permit extensions are available upon written request and approval.
