The Construction Department is responsible for permitting, inspecting and monitoring many building and construction projects, including new/temporary buildings, additions, renovations and demolitions.

Permits grant legal permission to begin your project, and they are needed to insure that state building and fire code standards are met, and to make sure the project is safe.

Other projects which may require permits include:

  • Fireplace installations
  • Swimming pools
  • Decks
  • Sheds
  • Fences
  • Certain projects that involve electrical, plumbing, heating ventilation and air conditioning systems.

Permits require a fee, which helps us to cover the cost of the time our staff spends on the application, review and inspection process.

Call us before you begin your project. We’ll be happy to tell you if you’ll need a permit and/or inspection — and we can even offer advice on how to complete the job safely.

Some projects will also require approvals by the Department of Community Affairs. You can download the forms from their site, or obtain them from our office.
