Building & Zoning
About the Department
The Building Official is responsible for reviewing construction plans, issuing and approving permits, and conducting inspections of construction in progress to ensure compliance with State/Uniform Building codes and local ordinances.
What many people do not realize is that most home improvements require building, electrical, mechanical, plumbing and or zoning permits. The primary reason for this requirement is to ensure that structures are built safely, and in conformance with current codes and local ordinances, but it also helps to ensure that residential contractors are held responsible for their workmanship.
