PERMIT APPLICATIONS CAN BE DOWNLOADED HERE OR PICKED UP AT OUR OFFICE. However, our building is currently closed to the public so paper copies of permit applications have been left in the WHITE MAILBOX located on the wooden railing directly outside the office door. You may drop off your completed application in the WHITE MAILBOX or there is also a larger TAN DROPBOX for your use if needed.

Be sure to review the fee schedule and include the $60 review fee with all Building Permit Applications. Also, please remember to include a Zoning application with your Building Permit when required.
