Building Guides

The Building Guides are a compilation of building, zoning, and operational requirements for a specific improvement project.

The guides will detail permit procedures, zoning regulations, construction requirements, inspection requirements, and permit fees.  The guides will assist the resident or contractor through the permit procedure but are not meant to be comprehensive.  

Please note that some of the guides below have supporting documentation listed below each category.  Unless otherwise listed below, please use the routine Building Permit Application, which can be found by clicking the following link:  Building Permit Application
    
Each guide below is in PDF format.  Within the PDF, there are some embedded links that will enable you to navigate to different applications/ web sites depending on the project.
