Permits and Construction

All building, remodeling, demolition, and other activities areR regulated by adopted codes and the issuance of permits. Simple permits such as garage sales are issued on site, other projects such as construction and remodeling follow a process of application, review, and inspection through our contracted inspection and compliance agent, Bureau Veritas. 

To see a list of the current adopted codes, see our Construction Codes and Ordinances page

For a description of the rules regarding zoning, including setbacks and allowed uses, see the Zoning Regulations page.

To find out how to apply for a permit for your activity or construction, see the Permits page or contact City Hall at           903-963-7216.
